Police are appealing for information after a Porsche reportedly rammed a police car, injured an officer and then struck six cars as it escaped from Holloway on Monday.
At around 9.30am on June 22 Met officers in Parkhurst Road pulled over a white Porsche Panamera in a car park but the driver allegedly refused to get out.
The Met says he then drove into the police car, which was “extensively damaged”, leaving one officer with “minor injuries” to his leg.
Another police officer on foot tried to stop the Porsche which then reportedly drove at him but made no contact.
The driver then made off, striking six cars way on their escape including one in Williamson Street, before later running away from the scene, police say.

Inspector James Beattie said: “The driver of this vehicle has driven extremely dangerously to evade police, and it is lucky that police officers were not seriously injured.”
