A man has been charged with attempted murder after two police officers were shot at in west London.

The officers tried to pull over a motorist spotted using a mobile phone while driving on the A40 in Perivale on Saturday night, but he failed to stop.

The shot was fired in Lily Gardens, but the officers were not injured.

Ryan Johnson, 23, of no fixed address, has been charged with two counts of attempted murder. He will appear before Ealing magistrates later.
