"A vehicle has collided with pedestrians near the Natural History Museum entrance at Exhibition Road", the museum, one of the most popular visitor attractions in the country, said in a statement.

London Ambulance Service said 11 people had been hospitalized for their injuries.

A Reuters witness said there were large numbers of police, including armed officers, and paramedics at the scene although the atmosphere appeared calm.

In a statement, Khan made no mention of terrorism but said he was in close contact with Mark Rowley, the head of counter-terrorism policing, and the emergency services.

He told the MailOnline the man was "screaming", adding: "I got out and grabbed him - three of us grabbed him - and someone phoned the police".

The Natural History Museum - the fourth most popular tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, according to industry figures - tweeted after the incident that it was still open for visitors.

"The people just panicked, panicking and running really, they didn't really know what was going on", he said.

Reports suggest the black Toyota Prius which mounted the pavement was a licensed taxi cab.
