Four pedestrians were injured when a car ploughed into them moments after police had tried to stop it.

Officers had attempted to stop a blue Fiat Punto in Hills Road, Cambridge, at 23:52 BST. The driver made off and mounted the pavement near Station Road.

A man was later arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.

Police say the car was not being pursued at the time but the incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Three boys, all aged 17, suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries and were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital for treatment.

A teenage girl was also injured, a spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said.

A number of occupants of the car made off on foot and are being sought by police.
