A woman has been left in hospital after a stolen car being chased by police collided with another vehicle in Kentish Town over the weekend.

The Metropolitan Police said that at 5.08pm yesterday - Sunday, January 16 - officers indicated for a car to pull over in Carlton Road in Finsbury Park.

According to the Met, a "pursuit was authorised" after the car reportedly failed to stop.

The suspect car, which police confirm was reported stolen shortly after the pursuit, collided with another car in Leighton Road.

A woman from that other car was taken to hospital with "non life-threatening or life-changing injuries".

Two men - one reportedly the driver, the other a passenger - allegedly then fled the stolen car and made off on foot.

Police said one man was arrested on suspicion of aggravated taking and driving away following a foot chase.
