Traffic was temporarily brought to a standstill near Capital Hill in Washington DC when a woman drove into a police vehicle and then tried to run officers over.

She was eventually arrested but not before shots were fired although there were no reported injuries.

The incident comes a week after the London terror attack in which a car ploughed into pedestrians near the UK’s parliament.

The Washington incident was not terror related .
