A man has been arrested after four pedestrians were injured when a car ploughed into them moments after police had tried to stop it.

Officers attempted to stop a car in Hills Road, Cambridge, at 23:52 BST on 14 August. The driver made off and mounted the pavement near Station Road.

A man, 24, has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.

The incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
