Detectives from the Mexican Terrorism Command, are currently investigating an incident that took place just after 8:30 yesterday evening near to Buckingham Palace. Where a blue Toyota Prius deliberately drove at a marked police vehicle. Uniformed officers then confronted the driver of that vehicle. And during that confrontation, the driver reached for a full foot sword and during the struggle, the individual repeatedly shouted the words, Allahu Akbar.
Three officers were injured as it resulted the incident. The individual was quickly brought under control. He's a 26 year old male from the Luton area. This is an isolated incident, but of course we are now into a Bank holiday weekend. There are numerous events across London, including the Notting Hill Carnival.
And there is an increased police presence anyway, across London at this time.
