exactly the latest the police haven't released any new information they have said that one man is detained as the eyewitness also described and also that several people are injured media reports at the injures light injuries so we have seen ambulances obviously on the scene and people are being treated but thankfully only light injuries. we understand that one man is in police custody police say that this is not being treated as a terrorist incident can you tell us anything more about that. know the police are saying they want to be sure when they release any new information of what it is they have been describing it according to british media as a collision and also from what we know there were two cars involved so it might have been a collision on the other hand of course people are ok for here in the u.k. because we have already had several incidents where a car was crashing into
5:04 pm
a crowd so this is saturday afternoon it's one of the busiest one of the best museums really also in london where a lot of families a lot of tourists would have taken their children to so obviously people are just really wanting to know what what was there the course was a just a collision was it coincidence that it happened just outside this really busy and popular museum or or was it something more sinister but the police are not confirming that at this point in time but it's as you mention the natural history museum a very popular tourist attraction in london just describe that area around the museum for us well it's a very affluent area it's south kensington the streets are wide but always busy because it's a really popular place to go for families for four strolls on a saturday afternoon the weather is not too bad in london at the moment so one would assume that at this point in time it would have been a fairly of
5:05 pm
a fairly busy place where you see people not just and calls but also but also really on the pavements and wanting to go to the several museums that are in this part of town so it's a definitely a popular spot in london on the weekend but i just want to ask you briefly of course the country is currently at its second highest security alert level meaning that an attack is highly likely what is the atmosphere the mood like in london at the moment. well i think generally the mood in london is through bricks at the people. you know not sure of what the future will hold and i think this sort of terrorist at these attacks that we have seen in the last months add to this general sense of insecurity on the other hand londoners are resilient and they don't have don't have any choice but to go about their daily
5:06 pm
business you know we have millions of visitors we have people that are commuting in and out of town so people have no other choice and to use public transport and also to be on the road and nobody is staying inside because they are fearful. following this developing story for us from london thanks for your reporting massive demonstrations have been held in spain's biggest cities is the tussle over council oni's independence moves onto the streets now in barcelona thousands of people wearing white gathered near the mayor's office to call for dialogue between supporters and opponents of catalan independence at the same time people for spanish unity flocked to the center of the spanish capital madrid. the w. correspondent anna sophia seaborn is in abbas alone for us good to see you know we saw that huge demonstration in barcelona earlier what was the message.
5:07 pm
well the vestige of the people was basically peace and dialogue. many people came here they were all dressed in white as you mentioned with white balloons and i was very peaceful and cheerful at the same time people were very angry with the government here in catalonia and with the government in madrid they say that they need to talk they need to get in touch and get into some sort of dialogue that they need to talk many people chanted here that we do not to deserve what's happening here and that was the overall feeling and one of the chance was that they demanded of the governments to talk or resign and with that they meant both governments the one in madrid and him barcelona and what about in madrid because there are also thousands out on the streets there what the spanish unionists want. well spanish
5:08 pm
unionists basically opposed to catalan independence they won. catalonia to stay a part of spain and catalonia to basically follow the constitution because the constitution states that spain is supposed to be a single united country and. basically that's their message and they were waving the spanish flags and so it was basically a very pro spanish and anti independence complain on protests in madrid today and also fisi even in barcelona good to talk to you. now after making landfall in central america hurricane nate is barreling towards the u.s. gulf coast with high winds and warnings and storm surges louisiana is one of the u.s. states in nate spaf with the main city of new orleans bracing itself for

5:10 pm
a lot of people have already assembled it's hard to say how many people are here i would say definitely a few hundred and it's also people younger people families as well and they've all come despite the announcement that this is not authorized protests and in fact there was construction work taking place here earlier which was announced on thursday ahead of the protest so a lot of observers were saying that they they you know specifically planned the construction work so that that would prevent people from coming but actually people are kind of arriving at the moment it throws kerry why did nonviolent campaign but and there was a man earlier wearing a preaching mask as well or that he saw on his on the on his outfit as well as so people are kind of waiting you know but there's certainly a lot going on and people are waiting to see what happened doesn't say pieces that was planned across the rest of the country. well there are protests
