A 48-year-old man has been arrested after a £100k Aston Martin was keyed in Hackney, the Met Police said.

The incident was filmed by a camera on the car's dashboard at about 10:30 BST on 19 June on Morning Lane, while it was parked in supermarket car park.

In the film, a man manoeuvres a pram before appearing to take keys from his pocket and scrape them down the passenger side of the vehicle.

Damage caused to the Aston Martin V8 Vantage was estimated at £9,000.

The man has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and taken to a north London police station for questioning, the Met said.
