Police followed the car, which later collided with “street furniture” and another parked car in Aubert Park.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “[A man] was arrested on suspicion of driving offences, being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and possession of an offensive weapon.”

He’s been bailed until mid-July.

A different man was seen getting out of the passenger seat of the car that crashed. Police say he got into a different vehicle, which was later found abandoned in Ronalds Road.
