A man's jaw has been fractured with a single punch during a parking dispute, police have said.

The incident took place after two men were seen parking in an Esso petrol station forecourt in Broadway, Bexleyheath, south-east London, before heading to a nearby restaurant.

The 36-year-old victim asked the men to move the car, which sparked a dispute at around 1pm on October 5, Scotland Yard said.

CCTV footage shows the victim was talking to one of the men when the suspect slowly walked up to him and punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground.

The Metropolitan Police described the suspect, who is still at large, as a white man in his early 30s with short brown hair and a beard.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
