“There could well be more people who suffered minor injuries last night who did not seek medical treatment. I’d urge those people to contact us so our officers can speak with you and provide any support that you may need.

“At this stage of the investigation, we believe that this was a targeted incident and that the vehicle was used deliberately to cause harm and damage. This is clearly an incredibly serious and dangerous offence, and we have a team of officers from all across the force working to progress enquiries and identify those involved as swiftly as possible.

“I’d reiterate our appeal for witnesses from this morning – we want to hear from you if you were on Shoreham Street in the early hours and may have seen what happened either before, during or after the collision took place.

“I’d also ask anyone who may have CCTV that we’ve not yet seen, or if you were driving through the Shoreham Street area and have dashcam footage, to also get in touch.”
