A moped was abandoned after a collision with a car in Caledonian Road last night.

Police were called at about 8pm to the junction with Hillmarton Road.

The moped was left at the scene, a Met spokeswoman said, and the car drove away.

No injuries were reported and “no offences have been disclosed”.

An eyewitness said: “I was just walking and heard a lot of beeping in the background. I wasn’t paying much attention but as I was on the junction, there was a crash and people shouting.
