Officers were called around 8am on Sunday (May 13) to reports of an incident at the junction of Woburn Road and Sherbourne Road.

A Nissan Qashqai car was being reversed when the vehicle is believed to have collided with a 32-year-old man, pushing him against a wall.

The pedestrian suffered a number of hip fractures and was taken to hospital for treatment.

The Nissan was then involved in a collision with a Ford Transit van.

“While we have arrested a woman, we are particularly keen to speak to any witnesses or anyone who might have information which can assist our enquiries.”
