A car believed to have been driven at several people in a "hit-and-run" in a supermarket car park has been recovered by police.

The Citroen C3 drove away from outside the Tesco store in Rickmansworth on Sunday and was later found in Watford.

A woman injured in the incident is now "out of hospital and recovering", a police spokeswoman said.

Hertfordshire Police said no arrests had been made, and officers were still searching for the car's occupants.

A video shared thousands of times on social media shows the car crashing into other vehicles in the car park as shoppers try to stop it.

Officers said the driver and a passenger had been involved in an "incident" inside the store in Harefield Road moments before.

A person was challenged by security staff after allegedly attempting to steal alcohol.

Police said they were examining CCTV from the car park and store after a car was "in collision with several people".

A Tesco spokesman said the store was "shocked by the incident" and staff were assisting police with their inquiries.

A fundraising page set up to support the victim had raised more than £1,800 by 15:00 GMT on 27 December.
