Two people have been arrested after a 24-year-old woman was left fighting for her life.

On Monday, a woman was punched after two people on a moped snatched her mobile phone and bag in Holyrood Gardens.

The rider punched her following an initial struggle with the passenger of the moped before they escaped in the direction of Stag Lane.

The victim sustained a head injury and she remains in a critical condition at a hospital in north London.

Yesterday (Thursday) an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of robbery. They were taken to a north London police station where they remain at this time.
