A police spokeswoman said the Mercedes crashed on Monument Street, between Broadway and Eastfield Road, and that three men made off from the vehicle.

A police car was also involved in a collision, although the spokeswoman said she was unsure if that was with the Mercedes or separately.

Both cars have been recovered and no arrests have been made at this stage.
