Police are hunting a mysterious motorist accused of deliberately driving through a puddle to splash pedestrians.
A 4x4 was filmed barrelling through water in Kentish Town, north London earlier this month, sending a curtain of spray shooting over the pavement.
LBC newsreader Zora Suleman who caught the splash on camera said: "There was a little old lady next to me and this car came up really close to the kerb, splashing everyone.
"Then I saw him stop and I thought: 'Oh my God, he's going to do this again', so I thought I'd take some footage.
"It might be fun for the driver, but I felt bad for this old lady, who was quite upset by it."
According to the Camden New Journal, the vehicle is unregistered, leaving the identity of the driver a mystery.
Scotland Yard said: "We were contacted on April 15 about an allegation of a person driving without due care and attention in relation to an incident in Kentish Town.
"Our officers are investigating. No one has been arrested."
