Police opened fire on a vehicle after it repeatedly rammed the car of Ukraine's ambassador to the UK on Saturday, ONA reports citing Euronews.

It happened around 9.30 CEST in Holland Park, an upmarket area in the west of London.

"The official vehicle of the ambassador of Ukraine to the United Kingdom was deliberately rammed as it sat parked in front of the embassy of Ukraine’s building," said the embassy in a statement.

"The police were called immediately, and the suspect’s vehicle was blocked up. Nevertheless, despite the police actions, the attacker hit the ambassador’s car again.

"In response, the police were forced to open fire on the perpetrator’s vehicle. The culprit was apprehended and taken to a police station."
