Cycle patrol policeman "deliberately" run over in south London

The 39-year-old officer needed hospital treatment after being struck as he attempted to stop a car as it travelled through Peckham on Wednesday afternoon. Detectives say he was "extremely fortunate" to have escaped without serious harm, although he sustained arm and leg injuries in the collision.

The vehicle appeared to deliberately run over the officer who had got off his bicycle. He was struck by the car and ended up on the bonnet before falling to the ground. "The suspects drove off at speed in the direction of Peckham, via Camberwell Green Road. "The 39-year-old male police constable was taken by the London Ambulance Service to a south London hospital with leg and arm injuries. He has since been discharged and is recovering at home."
