Natural History Museum

A Metropolitan Police statement confirmed: "Whilst enquiries continue it is believed a auto mounted the pavement and collided with a number of pedestrians".

A number of people were injured Saturday when a auto mounted the pavement outside the Natural History Museum in London and struck pedestrians, according to Scotland Yard.

At a time of high tension in the United Kingdom capital, the incident is not being treated as terror-related, Metropolitan Police said, calling it a "road trafficinvestigation".

Footage and photographs posted on Twitter showed the detained man next to a black auto with its door open and its bonnet severely damaged.

The police, in a statement, said: "Enquiries to establish the circumstances and motive are underway".

The paramedics are on the spot and have been giving medical treatment to the injured people.

The Natural History Museum is one of London's most popular attractions, with 4.6 million visitors a year.

"The people just panicked, panicking and running really, they didn't really know what was going on", he said.

It said the arrested man was among nine people taken to hospital, while two others were treated at the scene. They didn't say whether it was related to terrorism. Police said none of the injuries were life-threatening or life-changing.

Most of the injured suffered leg and head injuries.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted that details were "still emerging" and he was in close contact with Assistant Metropolitan Commissioner Mark Rowley - the head of United Kingdom counter-terrorism policing.

The incident sparked fears of a terrorist attack in an area busy with tourists and families.

Downing Street said Prime Minister Theresa May was being briefed on the incident.

Local MP Greg Hands added: "Concerned at events at the Natural History Museum".
