Undercover police today brawled with two suspected burglars after a dramatic car chase through central London.
Officers driving a black BMW raced after a red Mini Cooper when it refused to stop on Waterloo Place, near Pall Mall, in Westminster.
The policemen, dressed in tracksuit bottoms and hoodies, caught up with the vehicle and rammed it to a stop just past the Ritz a mile away.
Two of them smashed their way into the car before one rained punches down on the driver – who was later rushed to hospital with a head injury.
Police said the man was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop, dangerous driving and commercial burglary.
Meanwhile the male passenger was nicked on suspicion of commercial burglary while a female in the car was not arrested.
The fighting, at around 1.50pm on Thursday, came to a head outside the £25,000-a-year Eaton Square School.
