An inquest has heard that two men who were killed in a police pursuit in Tottenham died of multiple chest injuries.

38 year old Gregory Jones,  and Shaka Henry, 33, both from Islington,  died on Friday morning.

The pair were killed when the black Audi they were travelling in jumped a red light, clipped a white van and crashed into a bridge.

The car's 30-year-old driver tried to flee the scene but was arrested.

According to witnesses, police tried desperately to save the two passengers but they were pronounced dead at the scene.

The inquest will be delayed by up to six months while investigations by the Metropolitan Police and the Independent Police Complaints Commission continue.
