Six parked cars were damaged in a crash in Caledonian Road last night.

Police, paramedics and fire crews were called to the King’s Cross end of the Cally, near Balfe Street, just after 11.15pm.

Two cars had collided, with two men treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Islington Police suggested the drivers “may have been driving inappropriately”, but no arrests have been made.
