She instructed The Independent: “It was very scary due to it being rush hour and there were so many people present at the scene.

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

“And then I saw them get up and run. Only then did I realise the police cars because I had my Airpods in.

“So I stopped the music and then heard the shot. It could’ve hit any of us. It hit a woman in the leg. They were aiming it back behind them.”
