A police officer is in hospital after a driver she was attempting to pull over reversed his car into hers in Wembley - and then drove off.

Cops attempted to stop the Alfa Romeo at 4.10pm in Windermere Avenue because they suspected the man was driving while disqualified.

But after stopping, it reversed along the pavement and hit the police car as the officer was getting out, causing leg and neck injuries.

She was treated by medics before being taken to hospital. Scotland Yard said her condition is not life-threatening.

No arrests have been made and police are trying to track down the Alfa Romeo and the driver.
