    This happened like down the road from me, all I heard for the last hour was helicopters and ambulances.

    Really hoping that the drivers breaks have gone and it is not intentional.

    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.

    Agreed, plenty of people were saying that within a couple of minutes the police were at the scene

    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.
