A woman has been taken to hospital after her car smashed into a war memorial in south-east London.

Paramedics initially treated the driver at the scene of the accident in Kingswood Road, Bromley, before taking her to hospital "as a priority", London Ambulance Service said.

The memorial was left badly damaged in the crash at 10:20 BST. The Met is investigating.

The Grade II listed monument was unveiled in 1921.

It honours those who died in both World War One and Two.
