“There was police tape, ambulances, a helicopter overhead, more police cars coming at high speed from Clapham North and Clapham Junction.

“Then I saw what looked like a motorcycle on its side. And what looked like a bullet hole in the pub window at that intersection.'

Sian Cole said she was nearly hit by the motorbike when it veered onto the pavement with police chasing her as she got off at Clapham Common tube station.

She told The Independent: “It was very scary because it was rush hour and there were a lot of people there.

“I was walking and the motorcycle just crashed right in front of me.

“And then I saw them get up and run. It was only then that I realized the police cars because I had Airpods.

“So I stopped the music and then I heard the gunshot. It could have hit any of us. He hit the woman in the leg. They were aiming from behind.”
