Five men have been arrested after a car crashed into a mother and her eight-month-old daughter as she pushed her pram on the pavement.

The pair are both in serious but non life-threatening conditions after the collision in Finsbury Park, north London, at 9pm yesterday, police said.

Officers were called to the scene at Green Lanes, at the junction with Hermitage Road, after reports two cars had collided.

The driver of the Corsa car, which mounted the pavement and struck the woman and her daughter, fled the scene but was later arrested along with a male passenger in the car.

The other vehicle, a Seat Ibiza, left the scene but was later discovered by police who arrested the driver and two passengers
