Two men die after police chase in Tottenham

TWO MEN have died following a police chase in north London.

The pair were killed when the car they were travelling in jumped a red light, clipped a van and collided with a bridge in South Tottenham in the early hours of this morning (March 29), police said.

The car's 30-year-old driver has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and driving while disqualified, report the BBC

The victims, believed to be in their late 20s or early 30s, have not been identified.

The incident happened after officers on routine patrol became suspicious of the car, an Audi, which appeared to make-off at speed when it was driven past police just before 2.00am, officers said.

"Officers gave CPR prior to the arrival of ambulances, but both were pronounced dead at the scene," a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.

Eyewitness, Jeff Brown, told London Today that the crash, which happened at the junction of St Anns Road, woke him up. "I was in my room and heard a big bang," he said.

He also told the news team that the tricky junction was synonymous with accidents: "There has always been accidents on this road." He added: "It's Easter Friday and someone's parents are going to be crying."

The driver of the Audi was taken to hospital but his injuries are not believed to be serious.

The driver of the white van was also taken to hospital with minor injuries.
