0 0

A main road near a primary school has been blocked off by police after a car crashed during a chase.

Parsloes Avenue in Dagenham is currently closed off following the incident, which happened at around 6.53am this morning (July 18).

Police were called at 6.07am and signalled for a vehicle to stop.

The car failed to do so and a chase was initiated.

The chase then came to a conclusion at 6.53am when the car that was being pursued crashed on Parsloes Avenue.


The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that there was one man in the car – the driver – although there are no other details about him at present.

He sustained minor injuries in the crash as the London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service were called to the scene to assist.

The driver was then arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop, no insurance, driving without a licence and suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.

The latest is that Parsloes Avenue remains closed but the closures are expected to be lifted soon.
