TWO police officers suffered back injuries after their car hit another vehicle.

The marked police car hit a black Mercedes at about 7pm yesterday (Thursday) in Forest Road after being called to a domestic incident.

Its blue light and siren were running at the time of the accident.

Both vehicles were travelling in the same direction.

The two officers, a man and a woman, were taken to an east London hospital.

It is not yet known how many people were in the Mercedes but police say no one in the car is believed to have been injured.

An inquiry into the crash, which happened near the junction with Woodstock Road, is now being undertaken by officers from the Traffic Garage Chadwell Heath.
