A youth was mowed down by a car as hooded gangs wielding knives and metal poles brawled in a north London street. 

Violence flared as a group of up to 10 youths fought in the street in Harrow on Sunday afternoon.

Shocking footage showed young men, who were dressed in black hooded tracksuits, dodging in and out of traffic during the brawl in Locket Road.

One of them was seen carrying a large wooden piece of furniture in an apparent attempt to shield himself from any blows. 

In the video, some of those involved crowd together before a silver Volkswagen car speeds along the road towards them.

The youths then tried to run away but one of them was hit and sent flying before the vehicle crashed to a halt, wedged between a hedge and a lamppost.  

Some of the group then surrounded the car and struck the passenger side door with their weapons before fleeing the scene. 

A young man got out of the vehicle and appeared to attack the youth lying on the ground behind the car before running along a side street.

Two police officers arrived at the scene as shocked passers-by gathered on the pavement.
