Tonight at 1750 hours a blue Volvo was chased by police that was involved in firearms, and failed to stop for police. It was chased around Lee High Road, and eventually crashed at 12 Blackheath Village SE3, at the butchers. The vehicle mounted the kerb and drove on the footway from the little roundabout, all the way down between the shops and the bus stops ON THE FOOTWAY, making people dive out the way quickly. A very dangerous driver. Two males have been arrested and are currently being processed at Lewisham Police Station.
I have sent out a witness appeal via the text message system, as the more people that come forward the better, this male needs to be sent to prison and the team are investigating him now.
Please can you canvas as many people as possible and get them to call 0300 123 1212 with the details of what they saw, this can then be collated in all one place.
Thanks in anticipation.

With the usual caveats about speaking to the police (link is US-centric, but you get the idea).
