Eleven people were injured after the vehicle mounted the kerb outside the museum in South Kensington, central London, on Saturday.

Police said that while they are on high alert for terrorist activity, the incident was "not terror related".

A statement issued by the London Police said its officers were on the scene and that London Ambulance Service had been called.

A 47-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of unsafe driving and was taken to hospital for treatment, along with eight other people.

A man was detained at the scene, police said. "Enquiries to establish the circumstances are underway", the statement said.

The accident at 2:20 p.m. outside the popular Natural History Museum in the heart of central London brought a very big police response, including helicopters and hazardous area response teams, because of terrorist concerns.

No one is believed to have life-threatening or life-changing injuries.

"When it calmed down we walked back to where we'd been and saw a gentleman on the floor being restrained by police".
