Car which mounted pavement outside London museum sparking panic was road accident, say police

7 Oct

In March this year Khalid Masood, drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing four people and injuring more than 50 people before he was dead by an armed officer outside the Houses of Parliament. 

The following month Islamist terrorists killed eight people and injured another 48 after using a van to drive into crowds at London Bridge before jumping out and stabbing customers in bars and restaurants.

Speaking moments after the incident outside the Natural History Museum, Emmanuel Hook , who was in the area at the time, said: “I was in a Chinese restaurant eating and all of a sudden all the diners just hit the floor and there were all these people running on Exhibition Road towards the station.

“I was sat by the window, it was really worrying seeing all these people panicking. All of a sudden a large gathering of police turned up in yellow vests, everyone was leaving their bags behind. 

“People were panicking and running, no one knew what was going on, there were policemen saying go go run. We had to leave the restaurant and run off. I was worried there might be crazy people in the area trying to hurt people.”
