A police spokesman said: "Officers approached a male in a car near Falconwood railway station. The car then made off.

"The police vehicle, a dog unit, pursued the car. In Wincrofts Drive the car was in collision with another two parked vehicles.

"The driver then decamped but was detained by officers from the dog unit soon after. A police dog assisted in the arrest."

The driver was taken to a south London hospital and was later discharged. 

He was then arrested and is currently in custody at a south London police station.
