Police have reopened Goodmayes High Road several house after two teens were involved in a car crash after being chased by officers.

Police in a marked car began an authorised pursuit of a moped being ridden by two people at approximately 3.52am this morning (Friday, January, 12) in Goodmayes High Road.

The moped was subsequently involved in a crash with a vehicle being driven by a member of the public along Barley Lane.
