Two men were spotted fighting on a busy central London road with machetes after one attempted to use his car as a battering ram.

Onlookers filmed the white car moving around Edgware Road trying to knock over two men with machetes.

After regaining their footing, the machete-wielding pedestrians began attacking the car in an attempt to reach the driver.

Passerbys attempted to intervene, but were shoved back, before one of the men began swinging at them.

A Met Police Spokesperson said: ‘We are aware of social media footage of an incident in Edgware Road, W2, at approximately 19.15hrs on Saturday, 20 April.

‘It was reported a car was driven towards a man, before an occupant of the car then got out of the vehicle and attempted to assault the man with a metal bat.

‘The suspect vehicle and victim had left the scene before police arrived. Enquiries are ongoing to identify those involved.’

Multiple instances of machete-related crime have been reported in recent months – just weeks ago, a man carrying one was arrested outside of a tube station.

Witnesses said police arrived ‘very quickly’ after the alarm was raised near Clapham North station in south London to a man carrying the weapon.

In February, a Co-op store in London was raided by a masked gang who were wielding a massive machete.

Three assailants, all dressed in black with hooded tops and face coverings were seen on CCTV aggressively storming the supermarket where they threatened staff.
