Friday, October 27, 2017

A car has been filmed mounting the pavement and ploughing into passengers, in a chilling echo of recent London terror attacks.

The vehicle left one person sprawled on the ground when it collided with pedestrians outside the Mekan Bar and Restaurant in Lewisham, South London.

The motive for the attck, which took place on September 16, has yet to be confirmed.

In the footage, the car can be seen slowing down as it turns to face the pavement, near a bus stop. 

The vehicle comes to a complete stop, then a man appears to approach the driver-side window.

Then the car suddenly springs into life and motors towards the pavement, sending at least one person flying across the bonnet.

As it reverses away a person, which appears to b a man, is left lying on the ground as bystanders rush to help.

The Met Police has tweeted out the footage, and it can be seen below.

Anyone with any information about the incident is urged to call 07733 302 868.
