    Police open fire after Ukrainian ambassador's car rammed in west London

    Police open fire after Ukrainian ambassador's car rammed in west London

    Police opened fire on a vehicle outside the Ukrainian embassy in west London after the driver deliberately rammed into the official car of the country's UK ambassador, the embassy has said.

    Police were called to the scene in the Holland Park area at around 10am and attempted to block the offending vehicle, but it continued to hit the car parked outside the embassy.

    An official statement from the embassy said police "were forced to open fire on the perpetrator's vehicle", and "the culprit was apprehended and taken to a police station".

    No staff were injured, it added.

    The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that officers opened fire in the area but have not yet commented further.

    Disappointing. Just some nutter.

    A man arrested by officers who fired shots after a car was driven at police outside the Ukrainian embassy in London has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.


    The 40-year-old had been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder of officers after the ambassador’s car was “deliberately rammed” on Saturday.

    Scotland Yard said on Sunday that he would be taken to hospital for treatment after the incident in Holland Park.


    Ch Supt Andy Walker said the firing of a police firearm would be investigated.


    The Metropolitan police said armed officers were dispatched “as part of the protective security arrangements for London”.


    Officers said they were called at about 9.50am to reports of antisocial behaviour involving a car. When they arrived, the silver Mercedes was said to have been driven at police officers and collided with a number of parked vehicles near the Ukrainian embassy.


    Witness Darcy Mercier described the “really strange” event to the BBC. He said the car was “blasting Ukrainian music in some kind of protest against the embassy” after arriving at about 7am.


    Footage showed armed police surround the car before smashing the driver’s window and using a Taser on the screaming suspect.


    The Ukrainian embassy said that ambassador Natalia Galibarenko’s official vehicle had been deliberately rammed. No staff were injured.


    The Met said the Directorate of Professional Standards had been informed. The investigation continues.

    It was an easy call:
    White, Christian - Mentally disturbed.
    Dark, Muslim - Terrorist.

    We Americans have lots of experience with this sort of thing and could have solved this crime with one quick look at the perp!
