A car crashed this Thursday afternoon against the doors that block access to downing street, the London street that houses the official home of the prime minister, according to the Metropolitan Police, which has confirmed the arrest of the driver of the vehicle.
This person has been placed under arrest on suspicion of damage and reckless driving, although there is no record that the incident caused personal injury. “An investigation has been opened to establish the circumstances,” Scotland Yard said in a brief note. Security forces have cordoned off the surrounding areas as a precautionary measure, while agents with sniffer dogs have been deployed in the area. Images collected by the BBC show how the vehicle seems to slow down before colliding with the doors, permanently monitored by the Police.
Later, the police metropolitan London has issued a new statement in which it has stressed that the incident is being investigated by local agents in Westminster, and has confirmed that the event “is not being treated as related to terrorism.” The incident occurred when the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, was inside 10 Downing Street, as was Chancellor of Finance Jeremy Hunt. The ‘premier’ has left his official residence, as he had planned before the event, the Sky News television channel collects.
