Luke Pollard, a member of Parliament who represents Plymouth, said police told him multiple people were treated for injuries.

"We should prepare ourselves for grim news tomorrow," he tweeted. "Please look out for one another."

Police blocked off the Keyham area of Plymouth as they investigated the incident.

"Devon and Cornwall Police would stress this is not a terrorism-related incident," a news release from the department read.

"Police continue to ask any members of the public with mobile phone footage of the immediate aftermath of the incident not to post this on social media platforms and to respect those families who have lost loved ones this evening."
