Three police officers were injured when they were attacked as they tried to speak to people in a vehicle.

The officers were on patrol when they approached the occupants of a vehicle in Belmont Circle on Sunday (March 5) at around 8.30pm.

However the attempt resulted in a brawl as three of the four people did not co-operate with police.

The officers were assaulted and three were injured.

The Metropolitan Police say two of them, a man and a woman, were taken to hospital for treatment before being discharged.

Three men, aged 29, 33 and 55, were arrested in connection with the incident and remain in police custody.

Footage online showed police vans rushing to Belmont Circle.

Inspector Greg Wilkinson, of the Met’s North West BCU, said: “It is entirely unacceptable that officers making legitimate and reasonable enquiries were assaulted in this way. Additional officers were rapidly deployed, enabling the three suspects to be detained.”
