A man and a woman are in hospital with serious injuries after a car crashed into a shop in central London.

Firefighters, three ambulances and City of London police were called to the scene at St Paul's Church Yard, at 05:00 GMT.

Police said a woman in her 20s and a man in his 30s were taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The road between Ludgate Hill and Canon Street has now reopened, police said.

A force spokeswoman said damage to a live cable had to be fixed before the road could reopen.

London Ambulance said three ambulance crews were called to the scene.

A man and a woman suffering with back and neck pain were taken to the Royal London Hospital, a spokesman said.
