    Genuinely had the same thought. Hopefully it wasn't. So many people visit that Museum regularly majority of them are families.
    I think the good thing is that there hasn't been any major injuries reported so far so that's a relied

    If you have brake problems I'm pretty sure that it isn't standard practice to mount the pavement, after all it's a lot safer to rear end another vehicle or crash into t a tree than drive down a pavement with people on it.

    Looking at the pictures published so far it makes a change that the driver wasn't an arab.

    BBC News reporting that it's not being treated as a terrorist attack.

    Edit: They seem to have backtracked on that and are saying they don't know.

    Thankfully no one's seriously injured. Such a nice museum, has an earthquake simulator as well; one of the best things about London is we've got so many free museums, art galleries etc. And the police response is amazing as well. Really grateful that I live here.

    Translation: the guy was white, and nobody has decided if white people can be terrorists at the Tory Broadcasting Corporation.
