Police open fire after vehicle repeatedly rams Ukraine ambassador's auto in London

Police open fire after vehicle repeatedly rams Ukraine ambassador's auto in London”

No-one inside the embassy was injured.

"In response, the police were forced to open fire on the perpetrator's vehicle".

Police said the uninjured man was "taken to a central London hospital as a precaution".

It happened around 9.30 CEST in Holland Park, an upmarket area in west London. No one of the Embassy staff were injured.

However, streets in the leafy suburb - also home to the Embassy of Greece, Embassy of Uzbekistan and Cameroon High Commission in London - remain cordoned off by authorities as investigations into the man's motive continue.

Scotland Yard confirmed that shots were fired by firearms officers. Armed officers arrived and surrounded the suspect's vehicle.

The force said that, on arrival at the scene, a vehicle was driven at police officers.

Officers used firearms and a Taser before arresting a man in his 40s.

A Met police spokesman said the incident took place on Saturday morning and was not ongoing.

Some reports suggested there were shots from the auto that hit the ambassador's vehicle, but the embassy said only the British police opened fire.

The vehicle, which a police source said was a Mercedes, appeared to have been backed into the black auto.

A silver Mercedes raced towards the Ukrainian ambassadors auto as police shot at the driver through the window.

A woman who works at a nearby shop told the Press Association she heard shots fired twice between 10:00 GMT and 11:00.

London's Metropolitan Police said firearms and stun guns were used to stop and detain a suspect who drove a vehicle at a police auto when police arrived on the scene.
