Moment car 'crashes' into Downing Street gates
Video footage has captured the moment a car smashed into the front gates of Downing Street. The silver car can be seen slowing down briefly before lurching towards the home of Rishi Sunak and his family.
Despite the relatively slow speed of the crash, people could be seen fleeing the area and a substantial police presence now covers the area.
Police set up a cordon in Whitehall, the main road running past Downing Street, as officers with sniffer dogs were seen outside the gates.
There are no reports of any injuries and inquiries are ongoing.
One person has been arrested following the collision, which occurred at 4.20pm, police said.
The prime minister was in Downing Street at the time of the crash, but is understood to have since left for a scheduled visit.
