There were injuries reported after a car drove into a shop front on Golders Green Road, in what is reportedly a traffic “accident”.

Pesach shoppers faced chaos on Wednesday, after a vehicle drove into a pharmacy opposite Kosher Kingdom in north London.

Blogger David Collier took on Twitter to describe the incident, saying: the “car [has] driven into shop at Golders Green. People hurt. Pesach shoppers opposite Kosher Kingdom. No idea yet if accident or not”.

He added that it was: “Tragic. People holding shop front up . Certainly serious injury. People just out for Pesach shopping. Heartbreaking”

CST said it “has discussed with Police and can confirm that traffic incident in Golders Green Road appears to be an accident.”

Shomrim North West London posted a picture on Twitter, showing a London air ambulance landed in nearby Princes Park to attend the incident.

Henry Jacobs, who witnessed the event, said: “I was in Kosher Kingdom and we were told there was an emergency and had to get out. Kosher Kingdom was cordoned off. I had just come from The Mehadrin butcher and the car went into the shop two doors away.”

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
