The Met Police has now released images of the car they suspect was involved in the incident.

“We have had a number of people come forward, but I would urge anyone who has any information, no matter how small, to contact us so we can find the people responsible for this shocking incident.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101, or Tweet @MetCC quoting reference CAD 804/31Mar.
