The pair got into a vehicle which they believed to have been a private hire vehicle they had pre-booked before leaving the club.

However, they became suspicious when the driver began travelling in the opposite direction before offering them a drink.

As they exited the vehicle, the driver sexually assaulted both women before driving off towards Holloway Road, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said.
