Footage posted on social media appears to show a police officer being shoved from his motorcycle into the path of the police car he is escorting.
At the beginning of the short clip, two police officers can be seen riding motorcycles through a built up area, escorting a police car. Out of nowhere, a passer-by runs out into the road and pushes one of the officers off his bike.
The attacker sprints away immediately after the unprovoked attack, as the officer quickly manages to free himself from his fallen bike and attempts to run after the assailant. His colleague then gets off their own bike to help chase down the attacker, with the police car coming to a halt in the road – before the video cuts out.
Jerome Haye shared the clip on Twitter, with the caption ‘@metpolice getting pushed to their limits’. Haye confirmed that it was originally posted on the Instagram story of a friend, who he believes filmed the clip in Essex – but the exact location, time and date of the incident is unclear.
