A pedestrian has sustained serious injuries after being hit by a council CCTV car earlier today. 

The victim, a 42 year-old woman, has been rushed to the Royal London Hospital with head and leg injuries after the car mounted the pavement in Kings Head Hill, Chingford, at around 7am. 

Emergency services were called to the collision opposite Chingford Police Station at 7:15am and took over from officers who had been administering first aid. 

The woman's neck was then strapped and she was taken as a 'priority' to hospital. 

Officers from the station cordoned off the scene at the junction with The Rigdeway. 

Police are yet to reveal further details about the woman's condition and if any arrests have been made.  

The junction between The Ridgeway and Kings Head Hill remains closed and the 97 bus is being diverted. 

Drivers should seek alternative routes as there is a heavy build-up of traffic in the area.

Waltham Forest Council's parking enforcement contractor NSL has been contacted for a comment.

These cars a menace in more ways than one. The drivers are so keen to issue fines that I have often seen them being driven erratically.

I have seen one being driven along the road whilst the driver is leaning over writing something on a pad/in a book.

These things are often seen parked on double-yellows and are often driven by a certain twisted type of sub-human. A bad situation I witnessed about two years ago happened outside a vets in Leyton High Road. A woman was helping her obviously injured dog into the vets and was illegally parked for about two minutes. Yet unknown to her, one of these cold-blooded oddballs filmed her, so no doubt she soon had a hefty fine to pay. The sooner they're all sacked the better.

Agree with every comment above. The driver was possibly more interested in getting another motorist 'victim' rather than concentrating on his own driving. No way anyone should mount the kerb at that point. These spy camera shame the borough of Waltham Forest and the drivers of them are the ignorant power-crazy low life's ow life's. This driver should have been dragged out of his cab and straddled up over his spy camera pole. Ban these cars immediately.
Poor lady, I wish her a speedy recovery.

Also why does LBWF have so many of them. There must be around 10 or more of these vehicles. I don't see other neighbouring councils with these amounts.
Hopefully they now put the CCTV to "good use" and prosecute the driver for the offence.
