A silver Mercedes raced towards the Ukrainian ambassadors vehicle as police shot at the driver through the window.

London Metropolitian Police said in a statement that a 40-year-old man had been arrested. Thus, now he is in custody at a central London police station.

The statement added: "The incident is not being treated as terrorist-related". 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. "Police firearms and Taser were discharged, the vehicle was stopped and a man, aged in his 40s, was arrested".

Witnesses said 10 or more gunshots had been fired.

London's Metropolitan Police said firearms and stun guns were used to stop and detain a suspect who drove a vehicle at the police auto when police arrived on the scene.

Describing the events of Saturday morning, the Ukrainian embassy said that after seeing the ambassador's auto being targeted, police "blocked up" the other vehicle. However, despite this, the driver hit the ambassador's vehicle again.

The man was taken to hospital as a precaution but was not injured, they added.

The Met said officers were called at approximately 8.30am to reports of a auto in collision with a number of parked vehicles near the Ukrainian embassy.

A silver auto outside the embassy was the subject of a forensic officer's investigation on Saturday afternoon.

Chief Superintendent Andy Walker said, under standard procedure, the use of a police firearm in Britain is now being formally investigated.

TV footage later showed a silver vehicle slewed across the cordoned-off road with its driver's door open and window shattered.

Adding: "I would like to pay tribute to the officers involved in this incident who responded this morning and put themselves in harm's way as they do every day to keep the people of London safe".
