A YOUTH has been charged with dangerous driving after a police chase ended dramatically when a car crashed and flipped upside down.

The blue Alfa Romeo smashed into a lamppost and turned over outside the William Morris Gallery museum in Forest Road, Walthamstow, just before 6pm on Friday (August 24).

Police say the vehicle was being followed after it failed to respond to a request to stop a short distance earlier.

There were four men inside the car who were arrested and taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Following the incident, police say a 18-year-old and a 26-year-old were both released without charge, while a 21-year-old was cautioned for possession of cannabis.

Ryheem Gordon, 18, of College Close in Hackney, has been charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop, not having proper insurance and not having a valid driving licence.
