A man was arrested close to London's Natural History Museum after a car reportedly mounted the pavement and hit a crowd on the busy street in the UK capital.

A number of pedestrians are believed to have been hurt in the incident.

A spokesman for the museum stated that there had been a vehicle collision with pedestrians outside its entrance on Exhibition Road.

A witness told AFP there were armed police on the scene.

Police said they are investigating the incident, which comes after a number of attacks by extremists using vehicles to drive into pedestrians.

"Enquiries to establish the circumstances and motive are under way," police said in a statement.

Photos at the scene showed a man held down on the pavement.
