Moped Gang mows down woman in London


A WOMAN has been mowed down on London Bridge after a moped gang fleeing cops mounted the pavement.

Witnesses said another pedestrian was missed “by millimetres” at about 12.30am today.

The woman, believed to be a 51-year-old German tourist, was hurt when one bike dodged anti-terror bollards, installed following the London Bridge attack, and rode along the pavement.

A witness said the speeding rider had two pals riding alongside him.

Police have confirmed they were pursuing the gang of three shortly before they reached London Bridge, but said they were not being followed as they crossed it.

Scott Hepworth, 49, said: “I was on the bridge when I saw headlights haring towards me.

“He was doing about 55mph and missed me by millimetres. As I walked on, I saw a woman being comforted on the floor.”
