It is believed the van hot about five or six people before it crashed and then the armed attackers got out and ran towards the Borough Market and began stabbing people.

Gun fire was then heard within the Borough Market area of London it was later confirmed that armed police officers shot dead three suspects.

At the same time a stabbing occurred in Vauxhall which police believed could be linked to the attacks but they quickly said this was not connected to the two other incidents.

Published

on

Met Police assistant commissioner Neil Basu is providing an update outside New Scotland Yard.

He says the suspect, who is yet to be formally identified, is “not currently cooperating” with officers.

He adds police cordons are “likely to be in place for some time” as the investigation continues.

Basu says there “wasn’t a police car in pursuit of the vehicle” prior to it crashing into a security barrier outside Parliament.

He adds: “I believe it was an ambulance on a completely unrelated call.”

Armed officers are currently dealing with an ongoing incident outside of Parliament.

A vehicle was involved in a collision and armed police quickly deployed to the scene.

The vehicle crashed into a crash barrier that is there to protect the Houses of Parliament.

Met Police have confirmed a number of people have been hurt and the male driver has been arrested

Armed police approached the vehicle after it crashed into barriers.

Police quickly cleared the area and put a cordon in place.

The nature of the incident is not yet clear.

An eye witness has told Police Hour that he saw the vehicle driving at speed hit the crash barrier, police did not approach the vehicle until specialist officers arrived.

Specialist officers armed forced the door open and then forced everyone back.

Again almost half an hour after the incident police have further extended the cordon.

Published

Police have arrested a man on suspicion of terror offences after two people were injured when a car crashed into security barriers outside parliament.

The silver car is believed to have hit two cyclists before it crashed into security barriers at a checkpoint outside of parliament.

Two people have been treated at the scene and transferred to hospital for treatment.

Police have now confirmed that counter-terror officers are leading the investigation, The driver who is a man in his 20s, wearing a white shirt and a black hooded puffer jacket, was detained at the scene and is now in custody.

Met Police confirmed they were dealing with an ongoing incident, which involved armed officers outside of the Houses of Parliament.

The vehicle crashed into a crash barrier that is there to protect the Houses of Parliament within a security checkpoint.

It would be very unusual for a member of the public to be within this access point, this access point is guarded by armed police and only people on official Parliament business are granted access to this car park.

Unarmed officers held back from the incident this morning while awaiting armed officers to attend, police held the ambulance and fire service back until the situation was deemed safe.

Police quickly cleared the area and put a cordon in place, shouting to passers-by to clear the area. The cordon was quickly extended further and again further until the area of Westminster was placed on lockdown.

An eye witness has told Police Hour that he saw the vehicle driving at speed hit the crash barrier, police did not approach the vehicle until specialist officers arrived.

Specialist officers armed forced the door open and then forced everyone back.
