London Metropolitan Police reported said on Sunday that a 47-year-old man arrested on suspicion of risky driving after his auto hit and injured a number of people on a pavement has been "released under investigation".

"Police were called at 1421 on Saturday, 7 October to reports of a collision in Exhibition Road, South Kensington".

Police had said earlier that the cause of the collision was under investigation.

A 47-year-old man arrested at the scene of a vehicle collision near Natural History Museum in central London has been released pending investigation, Scotland Yard said today.

London's ambulance service said in a statement they treated 11 people, including the driver.

No one is believed to have life-threatening or life-changing injuries.

More than 200 police personnel were also deployed to help to cordon off the area of the explosion, making it hard to access.

As well as the Natural History Museum, the area is also home to the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A).
