Video has emerged of the moment a car ploughed into a crowd in Plymouth leaving 17 people hurt.

A teenager from south-east Cornwall is out on bail - after being questioned on suspicion of dangerous driving.

Pirate FM has decided not to share the film - since it includes the moment a twelve year old, amongst others, is injured.

The film starts with some of the cars at the legal "cruising" event, where owners show the power of their modified vehicles.

But then something goes wrong and a car runs into the crowd, with gasps and shouts heard from onlookers.

Everyone is now out of hospital.

Police are trying to find witnesses to what happened on Tavistock Road over the weekend.

They would particularly like to speak to anyone who may have recorded footage of the collision on their mobile phone or other devices.
 
Chief Inspector Ben Deer, head of local policing in Plymouth, said: “This event was a legal gathering of like-minded car enthusiasts on private land.
 
“Such gatherings happen regularly in the Force and are generally well-behaved and law abiding, passing without incident. On this occasion a very unfortunate incident has occurred and 17 people have been injured.
 
“This event is of concern and local officers will be working with the landowner to ensure public safety is paramount and reduce any risk surrounding such events in the future.
 
“We do receive and monitor intelligence about events of this nature. If criminal activity takes place, and where evidence is available, we will always take the necessary enforcement action.
 
“We are investigating this incident and we would like to hear from anyone who has information about the events before and after the collision. We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have filmed the events of the night on a phone or other device.”
 
Witnesses are urged to contact Plymouth Serious Collisions Investigation Unit by telephoning 101, quoting log 1025 of 26 July 2014.
