Police in London have opened fire after a car was repeatedly crashed into the Ukraine ambassador’s official vehicle outside the country’s embassy in west London. Armed officers shot at the suspect’s motor as it continued to smash into the parked vehicle in the capital’s Holland Park neighbourhood, a statement released by the Ukrainian Embassy said.
No-one was in the rammed car or hurt during the incident, it said. "The police were called immediately, and the suspect's vehicle was blocked up,” the statement said. “Nevertheless, despite the police actions, the attacker hit the Ambassador's car again. In response, the police were forced to open fire on the perpetrator's vehicle.
"The culprit was apprehended and taken to a police station. No one of the Embassy staff were injured.
"The police are investigating the suspect's identity and motive for the attack."
The Metropolitan Police confirmed officers had fired shots but said the incident was now over. It added the suspect was now being questioned.
