A group of pedestrians were injured after they were rammed by a car in central Croydon last night in a suspected revenge attack.

Police were called to High Street shortly after 1am to reports of a crash outside Club 88, which was closed at the time.

Witnesses reported that a black Vauxhall Zafira drove into a people known to the driver, injuring four people who were then rushed to hospital, where their injuries were deemed non-life-threatening.

The driver, who fled the scene, is yet to be caught by police, as enquiries continue.

A spokesperson for the Met police said: "At this early stage, one line of enquiry is that the crash was intentional but is not terrorism related."

According to a witness, who did not want to be named, the driver had been involved with a dispute with the group shortly beforehand.

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers in South Central Borough Command Unit via 101 quoting reference CAD455/19May or via charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111.
