Man charged with ramming police
Monday 29 August 2011
A 28-year-old man has been charged with attempted grievous bodily harm with intent on two police officers during the rioting in London.
Jah-Kiel McDermott, from Ilford in Essex, is due to appear at Thames magistrates' court, in east London, today. A 31-year-old man has previously been arrested and bailed.
Two officers were seen, in CCTV footage released by Scotland Yard, being hit by a green Citroen driven at speed in Waltham Forest, north-east London, as they dealt with reports of a group looting a clothing store at about 1am on 8 August.
One officer suffered knee and leg injuries and the other received shoulder injuries. They were taken to hospital and are both recovering at home. PA
