Police shoot vehicle after it crashes into Ukrainian Ambassador's car outside London embassy

London police have fired gunshots at a man who rammed into a diplomatic auto parked outside Ukraine's Embassy, and then tried to drive into officers.

Armed Police opened fire on auto speeding towards the Ukrainian ambassador's vehicle.

"No one of the embassy staff were injured", the embassy said.

The 40-year-old had been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder of officers after the ambassador's vehicle was "deliberately rammed" on Saturday.

Police say the vehicle "was driven at police officers," per the Guardian. When officers arrived on the scene, a auto was "driven at them", Metropolitan Police said.

"In response, the police were forced to open fire on the perpetrator's vehicle".

Witnesses have said at least 10 shots were fired and Scotland Yard confirmed firearms and a Taser were used.

Police said the man they arrested also suffered no injuries and that the incident is not being treated as terror-related.

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".

Senior police officer Andy Walker said there would be an investigation into the discharge of a police firearm, as in line with procedure.

The silver vehicle's rear right indicator was flashing and its boot and driver's door were open.

The Met said the Directorate of Professional Standards has been informed.
