THREE people are being held in custody over an alleged robbery which led to a policeman suffering life-threatening injuries.

The officer, a firearms specialist with the Met's elite CO19 is fighting for his life today after confronting the occupants of a silver Chrysler car believed to have fled the scene of the robbery in Rosedale Road, Dagenham, on Saturday.

Police gave chase and the officer, aged in his 30s, suffered severe head injuries as he got out of an armed response vehicle about five miles away in Ashlin Road, Newham.

Two other officers received minor injuries when their patrol car was hit by another vehicle.
