There's been a serious incident outside the Museum. We are working w/@metpoliceuk and will provide an update when we have more information — NaturalHistoryMuseum (@NHM_London) October 7, 2017 the police have evacuated the museum of Natural History of London as a precautionary measure. According to a spokesman of the center, the outrage took place by the entrance. The ambulance service has come immediately to the scene of the event and the area has been off by the security forces. The South Kensington subway station has also been closed to the public.
It is a neighborhood usually full of tourists, even more on the weekends. It is known as the Museum District, as it hosts, in addition to the Natural history, the science and the Victoria and Albert.
A reporter from the British BBC network present in the area has reported that the police have told her that the wounded are not serious. Images hanging in the network by witnesses in the area show destruction of public furniture and several vehicles by collision. In a video you can see as four men, predictably security agents, have immobilized against the ground an individual next to what looks like the car collided, black color.
The incident has caused panic scenes in the area. In recent months the City of London has experienced three terrorist attacks-on March 22 at the Westminster Bridge on June 3 at the London Bridge and the 19th of that month in Finsbury Park-in which the aggressor has used a motor vehicle to assault Pedestrians.
