A mother and her baby are in hospital after a car crashed, mounted the curb and collided with the pram in North London. Five men have been arrested.

Police were called to Green Lanes in Finsbury Park on Friday night, responding to reports that two cars had crashed.

After the collision, one of the cars, a Vauxhall Corsa, mounted the curb and hit a woman and her eight-month-old baby daughter, who was in a pram. The two have been taken to hospital where they are in a serious but not life threatening condition, police said.

The driver left the car and fled but was stopped by members of the public and then arrested, along with a passenger in the car.

The other car left the scene but was found later, and its driver and two passengers were arrested.
