Video from the streets of London has captured the moment a Metropolitan police officer was knocked off his bike in a seemingly unprovoked attack.
Posted to Twitter by music manager Jerome Haye, the video shows two police officers riding motorbikes down a street in Ilford in front of a police car.
Suddenly, after they're stopped by traffic, a pedestrian steps forward and pushes one of the officers, causing the bike to fall over and momentarily trap the rider.
However the officer is quick to recover and clambers over the fallen bike to chase the pedestrian on foot.
Another uniformed officer then appears from off-screen and joins in the chase.
Mr Haye shared the clip on Twitter, saying "@metpoliceuk getting pushed to their limits".
It was originally part of a Snapchat story, with the witness writing: "Can't believe what I just witnessed".
The Metropolitan Police has not commented on the matter.

Mountain View Police Department release body cam footage of encounter with YouTube shooter Nasim Aghdam hours before her deadly attack in California.
On April 3rd, a woman named Nasim Aghdam entered YouTube’s main campus in San Bruno, California through a parking garage and opened fire, wounding three employees of the video-sharing platform before fatally shooting herself in the chest. Just hours before, Aghdam had been stopped by police in Mountain View.
Footage of the encounter, released by Mountain View Police on Friday, takes place around 1:38am, when officrs correlated the license plate of the car Aghdam was asleep in to one associated with an “at risk” missing person. Three days prior, her family had reported her missing. “I left my family. I don’t live with them anymore,” she tells officers in the footage, “We don’t get along together.”
Aghdam claimed to be in Mountain View trying to find work. She hadn’t told her family she had planned to leave and had intentionally left the cell phone she normally used in San Diego, presumably to avoid contact. Officers ask if she has plans to hurt herself or anyone else. Aghdam says she does not.
According to a statement from the Mountain View Police Department Aghdam “in no way met any reason for us to speak with her further or possibly detain her” and when police called her family to notify them she’d been located her, “at no point did her father or brother mention anything about potential acts of violence.”

Police officers fatally shot a knife-wielding man inside Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in California as shocked shoppers looked on.
Las Vegas Metro police released body cam video of the officer involved shooting that left one man dead. The shooting happened on Friday morning near the 200 block of Madge Lane as those officers were headed to another call. Officers say they noticed a car driving recklessly, so they pulled the car over. That’s when video shows the driver, identified as 22-year-old Junior David Lopez, get out of the car with a gun—and immediately drop it. But two other passengers in the car said that they recall how this unfolded differently. Lopez’ girlfriend, Amber Bustillo and her friend, Kimberly Gonzales, were in the car. They said they heard Lopez say he had a gun with a permit. They also said he had it in the holster the whole night. Gonzales said she remembers seeing him toss the gun towards the back tire. Metro officers say that Lopez told officers to shoot him, twice.
But Bustillo and Gonzales said they heard him say, “Don’t shoot me,” before shots were fired. Despite being given commands to stay away from the gun, Lopez then got to his knees and reached for it. Both officers fired at least 2 rounds, Striking Lopez. Even after he was hit, Lopez continued to reach for the weapon, forcing one of the officers to fire another shot, hitting him. Lopez later died at the hospital. Lopez’ father said he will meet with Metro officers on Wednesday to take a look at the video and judge for himself what happened. He also said he would like witnesses to come forward and share their account. This is the fifth officer involved shooting for metro police in 2018, and the third to turn deadly.
Two Louisville Metro Police officers fatally shot a man on Sunday evening who was holding a screwdriver, according to body camera footage. In the footage released Tuesday, officers Devin Dawes and Matthew Aden can be seen shooting at the man, killing him at the scene. Both men have been with LMPD since 2015. Police responded around 7:45 p.m. Sunday to the 4600 block of Crawford Avenue, off Dixie Highway, where police said a man, 45-year-old Russell Bowman, was acting erratically. In the video, several officers were seen chasing Bowan who was pacing in front of a Pleasure Ridge Park home with a screwdriver in his right hand. Several officers pulled out their firearms asking him to drop the screwdriver. After telling Bowman to drop the screwdriver numerous times, several officers deployed their tasers. They didn't work. "It ain't working," Bowman can be heard screaming in the video. Aden also told Bowman to put down the screwdriver. "Just drop it," Aden yelled. "We don't want to hurt you." Bowman then lunged at Aden. Aden and Dawes shot him numerous times before he hit the ground. Other officers on scene then began rendering aid to him.
LMPD police chief Steve Conrad did not take any questions after the press conference, but he did reinstate the force's use of deadly force policy. "Police work is a dangerous job that requires difficult split-second decisions that others will judge and scrutinize for a lifetime," Conrad said. Deadly force is authorized in "defense of oneself or another" when a subject poses "an immediate threat or danger or serious injury to the officer or to another person," according to LMPD's standard operating proceedures. Bowman has been homeless several times and was also a former patient at Central State Mental Hospital, according to arrest citations. Most recently, he was arrested in 2017 for taking a metal crowbar to a bunch of business windows. He was arrested on multiple charges ranging from public intoxication and public urination to robbery and disorderly conduct. Both officers Aden and Dawes have received numerous letters of commendation. Both officers work in the third division, which encompasses Auburndale, Fairdale, Iroquois Iroquois Park, Kenwood Hill as well as Pleasure Ridge Park.
