Drugs and a machete were seized after a stolen Ford Mondeo crashed on the North Circular Road in Neasden while being chased by the police on Wednesday afternoon.

Two boys, aged 16 and 18, have been arrested.

The car was identified as stolen shortly before 5pm by members of Scotland Yard’s Operation Venice squad, who attempted to stop it in the Willesden High Road.

The vehicle made off and travelled along Dog Lane and approached the North Circular.

As the Mondeo entered the carriageway it collided with two other vehicles.
