Five men have been arrested after a baby girl and her mother were hit by a car while on the pavement in north London.

The woman and her eight-month-old child are both in serious but non life-threatening conditions in hospital after the collision in Finsbury Park, north London, at 9pm yesterday, police said.

Metropolitan police officers were called to the scene at Green Lanes, at the junction with Hermitage Road, after reports two cars had collided.

The driver of the Corsa car, which mounted the pavement and struck the woman and her daughter in a pram, fled the scene but was later arrested along with a male passenger in the car.

The other vehicle, a Seat Ibiza, left the scene but was later discovered by police who arrested the driver and two passengers.

The road has since reopened.
