Shots have been fired at two officers who stopped a car carrying a suspected kidnap victim after pursuing it on a motorway, police have said.

Two men fired on the Hertfordshire officers after the Peugeot 307 was stopped in Broadhurst Avenue, Edgware, north-west London on Saturday.

The car had been followed after being spotted on the M1, near junction four, at about noon.

Clayton McKenzie, 35, of Harlesden, London, has been charged with kidnap.

He is due to appear at Hatfield Remand Court.

A 30-year-old man, who police believe to have been kidnapped, was found inside the car. He was not injured.

A Hertfordshire Constabulary spokesman said officers were trying to trace a second suspect.
