A police officer suffered leg injuries in West Hampstead on Thursday after officers stopped a BMW they believed was "driving suspiciously".
Met officers were on a routine patrol at around 10.25pm when they spotted a blue BMW in Netherwood Street in the Webheath estate, which runs between Kilburn High Road and Sheriff Road.
The Met said a police officer was trapped between the car and a stationary police vehicle and injured as its driver attempted to reverse away.
Three men – aged 24, 26 and 33 – have been arrested. Police said a fourth man fled the scene.
The officer was taken to hospital with leg injuries but has since been discharged.
