A driver is believed to have been arrested after purportedly ramming into a north London police station tonight.
Unverified footage shows officers tackling a man to the ground outside Edmonton Police Station on Fore Street, which sources say has been evacuated.
A car is seen jutting out from the side of the building where it appears to have hit.
The Metropolitan Police tweeted: ‘We’re aware of an incident at Edmonton police station in Enfield.’
Video taken from the scene and posted on social media shortly after 7pm records a witness saying a car careered into the station and shows a police cordon.
Councillor Ergin Erbil tweeted: ‘Reports of major incident declared at Edmonton Green police station. If you’re in the Fore Street area stay safe and be careful.’
