Police are appealing for information and have arrested several men  after a car drove into a group of people in Battersea.

Five men were arrested for affray following the incident, which took place on Lombard Road in Battersea on Saturday evening (July 13).

The police have issued an information appeal as they conduct an investigation into what happened. 

A spokesperson from the Met Police said they were called at 11.15pm on Saturday to reports of a fight following the incident, which injured seven people.

One man, believed to be in his 20s, suffered a broken leg. 

Another, also thought to be in his 20s, suffered a head injury. His condition is not yet known. 

Several other people sustained minor injuries from the incident, police said. 

A spokesperson for the Met said around midday on Sunday: 

"A total of five males – no further details – have been arrested on suspicion of affray and remain in custody.

"Enquiries continue to identify and locate the driver of the car who had fled the scene prior to police arrival.

"There have been no other arrests at this time.

"It is thought the altercation began after a group of people had exited a nearby hotel."

A crime scene has been established in the area and enquiries are continuing.

Police said the group were driven at as they left a nearby hotel, with officers attending the scene alongside the London Ambulance Service.

The incident is not terrorism-related, a Met spokesperson said.
