Videos of the incident are going viral on social media where a car can be seen driving slowly towards the gate before crashing into it.
The driver of the vehicle was immediately arrested by Metropolitan Police and further investigation is underway.
The accused has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and dangerous driving.
There are no reports of any injuries.
Meanwhile, security has been beefed up outside the PM’s house with the road leading up to Downing Street getting cordoned off by the police. Sniffer dogs have also been brought in.
