Police officer injured in M25 high-speed chase
A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a high speed pursuit by police cars in Surrey during which an officer was injured.
The chase began at about 03:00 GMT when a Vauxhall Insignia sped away from officers in Caterham and onto the M25.
It came off at junction 9, and police brought it to a stop on the A24 bridge at Leatherhead.
During the pursuit the car drove over the foot of a Metropolitan Police officer deploying a stinger device.
The officer was taken to hospital with serious, though not life-changing, injuries.
A number of police vehicles were also damaged during the incident, which ended at 03:20 GMT.
The driver of the Vauxhall, who was the only person in the car, was arrested and taken to hospital as a precaution.
He is also being questioned on suspicion of the possession of offensive weapons, which are understood to be knives.
