Car crashes into front gates of Downing Street in London, one arrested


A car has collided with the front gates of Downing Street, where Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s office is based, London police said on Thursday.

Police said there were no injuries and one person had been arrested.

Television pictures showed cordons in place along Whitehall, a main road running past Downing Street where several government departments are based.

An image posted on Twitter by Sun journalist Harry Cole showed a small vehicle outside the gate, with its doors and trunk open.
