The Metropolitan Police have issued a statement after two men died in a collision early this morning on the Seven Sisters road in North London.
Shortly before 0200hrs on Friday, 29 March, Islington officers on routine patrol in a police vehicle became suspicious of a car that appeared to make off at speed when passed in the opposite direction by police.
After several minutes searching for the Audi, the officers sighted it several hundred metres away and they sought to catch up.
The Audi was driven through a red light and a short time later it clipped a white van and subsequently collided with a bridge on Seven Sisters Road near to the junction with St Ann's Road in Haringey.
Two male passengers in the Audi, both believed to be aged in their late 20s or early 30s, were seriously injured.
Officers gave CPR prior to the arrival of ambulances, but both were pronounced dead at the scene. Enquiries continue to establish the identity of the two men.
