Several people have been hit and injured by a car close to the Natural History Museum in London.

Emergency services were believed to be at the scene of the incident while one individual is thought to have been detained following the crash.

A BBC reporter, Chloe Hayward described the scene thus;

"I could see a car diagonally across the road, looking like it was going into one of the boulders on the side of the road, and I could see a crowd of people around what was clearly one or two people on the pavement."
