    The car drove into the nightclub in the British city of Gravesend, Kent on Sunday night, injuring 13 people, the county's police services reported.

    According to law enforcement services, the lives of the victims are not threatened now. The police do not exclude that the number of wounded may increase, as several victims could leave the scene on their own.

    The incident took place around midnight local time on Saturday. Following the incident, police detained a young man suspected of attempted murder. The police assume that shortly before the incident he was asked to leave the club, what triggered a fight.

    Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate in partnership with the Serious Collision Investigation Unit remain at the scene of an incident in Gravesend, questioning witnesses.

    On Facebook, the club thanked "the heroic actions of our door team and guests to apprehend the individual before further harm was caused."
