The incident supposedly occurred in Highgate north London on Friday night.

A spokesperson for the metropolitan police said: “Police were called at approximately 7.18pm on Friday 21 February to reports of an alleged collision between a vehicle and a member of the public in Sheldon Avenue N6.

“The member of the public, a man in his thirties, sustained minor injuries. Officers have spoken to the driver of the vehicle.”
