Police and other emergency services are in Hainault, east London, at a serious incident in which a man with a sword has been arrested.

From the Met Police:

We were called shortly before 07:00hrs to reports of a vehicle being driven into a house in the Thurlow Gardens area. There were reports people have been stabbed.

At this time we understand the suspect went on to attack other members of the public and two police officers.

We are awaiting an update on the condition of those injured.

A 36-year-old man was arrested at the scene and he is in custody.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Ade Adelekan said: “This must have been a terrifying incident for those concerned.

“I know the wider community will be feeling shock and alarm.

“People will want to know what has happened and will we provide more information as soon as we can.”

We do not believe there is any ongoing threat to the wider community. We are not looking for more suspects. This incident does not appear to be terror-related.
