Two police officers were rushed to hospital after their marked car collided with another vehicle in north London.

The police car had to be cut open by firefighters in order to free the officers following the collision on Broadfields Avenue in Edgware at around 2.30pm.

The officers’ injuries were not believed to be serious, while the driver of the other car was not injured.

Dramatic pictures from the scene showed fire engines and an ambulance gathered around the crashed car, with the surrounding road cordoned off around. A later image showed the vehicle with its entire roof sawn off.
