Six people were injured and transported to hospital, while the number of fatalities is two.

ITV reports the following statement from the London Ambulance Service:

We sent three ambulance crews, an advanced paramedic, our hazardous response team and London air ambulance.

We treated eight patients, every effort was made to resuscitate a patient, but sadly, a man died at the scene as a priority. Six patients were treated for minor injuries but did not need to go to hospital.
