Since China imposed a draconian National Security law on Hong Kong, a lot of dinner party chatter in this protest-minded city has been about personal…
A person was seriously injured when a hire car drove into several people and vehicles trying to escape a Tesco car park.
Shocking footage has emerged of a blue Citroen ramming into cars while people slam shopping trolleys into it outside the supermarket in Rickmansworth.
The chaotic video shows several people surrounding the car which is driving very erratically in an apparent attempt to flee.
Hertfordshire Police believe the driver and the passenger were "involved in an incident inside the store… where a person was challenged by the store’s security after attempting to steal alcohol".
The car already has damage to a wing mirror when the video starts with it reversing and ramming into a car as a bystander shouts for the driver to ‘stop’.

It then reverses again and people shout for the driver to ‘get out’ and throw trolleys into the driver-side door repeatedly.
The door opens before the people surrounding say it might be better to just ‘leave him in there’.
The driver then makes an aggressive manoeuvre through several parked cars, setting off alarms.
That’s when the damage to the rear window of the hired Citroen becomes clear.
A man with what appears to be a metal bar gestures at the driver behind the wheel.
The car then manages to wriggle free and flees the scene.
Hertfordshire Police have appealed for information.
A statement by the force on Facebook said: "At 1.57pm December 23 police were called to a report of a car being in collision with several people outside the Tesco store in Harefield Road, Rickmansworth.
"The ambulance service also attended the incident.
"One person was taken to Watford General Hospital after sustaining a serious injury. Another person sustained slight injuries and also received hospital treatment.
"The vehicle – a blue Citroen C3, a hire car with a registration of KW18 HGK – did not stop, but left the scene.
"It’s believed the driver and passenger were involved in an incident inside the store moments before the collision, where a person was challenged by the store’s security after attempting to steal alcohol.
"Officers are continuing to work to locate the vehicle and its occupants."
Tesco have declined to comment.
