"A man who was arrested following an incident in Holland Park on the morning of Saturday, 13 April has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act. The 40-year-old man will be taken to hospital for treatment," the Met said in a statement.
Police were alerted to reports of "antisocial behaviour" outside the embassy. They found a man driving his car into vehicles lined up near the diplomatic mission. Officers fired guns at the suspect’s vehicle after he drove at them and used a Taser to subdue the man.

The incident is not being treated as terrorist-related, according to the police. The Ukrainian embassy said the car of the country’s top diplomat in the United Kingdom was damaged but staff members were not hurt.
