As we detaield earlier, on the heels of yesterday's deadly terror attack in southern Manhattan, there is panic in central London tonight according to The Express, as a taxicab has "mounted the pavement and ploughed into people." For now it is unclear if this is an accident or intentional but there is a heavy police presence and multiple casualties.
Photos from the scene this evening showed the black cab on the pavement with people comforting at least one person on the ground.
And there is a heavy police presence already...
