When a vehicle ploughs into pedestrians in today’s Europe, fears of a terror attack are inevitable.

But police in Finland say there is no indication that there was anything intentional involved when a car crashed into a crowd of people in the heart of Helsinki. Three people are, however, reported to have been seriously injured.

The driver, in his 30s, was being questioned by police who believe he may have suffered a medical emergency.

Like other European capitals, Helsinki is taking security seriously amid fears for New Year celebrations.
