A man has been charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving after four pedestrians were hit by a car 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 car drove off and mounted the pavement near Station Road.

The incident was referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

The man, 24, will appear at Cambridge Magistrates' Court later.

He has also been charged with driving while disqualified, driving with no insurance and failing to stop following a collision.

Three boys, all aged 17, suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries and were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital for treatment.

A teenage girl was also injured.

Police said the car, a blue Fiat Punto, was not being pursued at the time of the incident.
