    Police and ambulance services are responding to an incident on Golders Green Road, involving a car that was driven into a pharmacy opposite Kosher Kingdom in Golders Green.

    Early reports suggested that the incident was not terror related and may have been the result of a driver losing control of their vehicle. CST has confirmed that this is the case.

    An air ambulance was sent to the scene, landing at nearby Princes Park, and there are reports of injuries. The area was already very busy due to the number of people Pesach shopping.

    A security guard at Kosher Kingdom, which is directly opposite the pharmacy, told the JC: “The pavements were very busy because people are doing their Pesach shopping.

    “A car lost control and drove onto the pavement and into the shop. I don’t think it was on purpose.”

    CST security guards, who were helping the police clear the area, added: “We do not believe it was terror related it looks like it is just an accident.”

    A bus driver who did not want to be named said: “I think the car belonged to an older lady who couldn’t park her car. Another elderly man tried to park it for her and lost control.

    “Her daughter was very worried it was her mum in the car. I was trying to reassure her.”

    The driver was taken away in an ambulance.

    A spokeswoman from the London Fire Brigade said: "Two fire engines and a fire rescue unit have been called to a road traffic collision in Golders Green Road.

    "One car has collided with a shop front.

    "The Brigade was called at 1154. Fire crews from Hendon, Finchley and Paddington fire stations are at the scene."

    MPS Barnet tweeted: "Police in #Barnet are on scene and dealing with a road traffic collision at Golders Green Road."
