TWO MEN DIED during a police car chase in London in the early hours of this morning.

The pair were killed when the vehicle they were travelling in hit a bridge on the Seven Sisters Road in Haringey.

Scotland Yard said a third man – the driver of the Audi being pursued by police – was arrested at the scene on suspicion of dangerous driving causing death and driving while disqualified. He is 30 years old.

It is understood the car jumped a red light and clipped a white van before hitting the bridge.

BBC News has reported the deceased as being in their late 20s or early 30s but they have yet to be identified.
