The driver of a £208,000 Ferrari has been charged over a horrific crash that left seven teenagers injured.

Witnesses described "horrible" scenes after the 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale hit a crowd of people on a pavement in Battersea just before Christmas.

Seven teenagers were taken to hospital following the incident in Battersea Park Road, two of whom - a 17-year-old boy and 16-year-old girl - were detained for further treatment.

Eyewitnesses told how some of the victims were sent flying over railings near Battersea Dogs & Cats Home by the force of the impact on December 12.

One of them was found on the other side of the two-metre railings after smashing through the windscreen of a Toyota Corolla below.

The Ferrari driver stopped at the scene and was initially arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

Now police have charged 36-year-old Andrew Kwon in connection with the incident.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Andrew Kwon, 36, of Gatliff Road, Chelsea, has been charged with driving without due care and attention.

"This follows a collision in Battersea Park Road on Monday December 12. Seven people were taken to hospital for treatment to injuries - all were subsequently discharged. "

Kwon has been bailed to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court in June.
