An inquiry has been launched after a teenager ended up in hospital following a collision with an unmarked police car which was giving chase.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating how the 15-year-old was hurt in the incident on December 2 last year.
The IPCC said the teenager was riding a moped in Caledonian Road, Holloway, when the officers gave chase in an unmarked Ford Focus.
He fell off the moped in nearby Market Road and began to run away, but the police car blocked his path.
The car then mounted the pavement and collided with the teenager. The 15-year-old sustained sprained wrists and cuts to his legs.

“Our investigation will be thorough in finding out what happened.”
