At about 11pm on Friday, July 3, police were called to the Allendale Road area of Farringdon after reports a man had been hurt.

It was reported that the victim was parked in a blue Vauxhall Zafira outside the shops opposite the Archer Road junction when a blue BMW was driven deliberately into his car.

The victim – in his 20s – reportedly then drove away from the scene but was pursued by the occupants of the BMW. A few hundred yards down the road, at the junction with Aberdale Road, the vehicles collided again.
