An undercover officer was shot at after confronting two men "acting suspiciously" in south west London in the early hours.

Two plain clothes police officers approached the men just before 04:30 BST in Sandmere Road, Clapham.

Both men ran off, and one pointed a gun at the officer before firing one shot.

Neither of the officers were hurt or injured. A man has since been arrested and is in custody in south London.

No firearm was recovered and police enquiries continue.
