A man in his late-20s has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences after two people, said to be cyclists, were injured when a auto crashed into security barriers in Westminster at about 7.40am.

The privately-owned silver Ford Fiesta, registration FL10 CWZ, used in the attack was driven from Birmingham to London late on Monday and spent nearly five hours in the Tottenham Court Road area.

A man in his 20s was arrested at the scene on suspicion of terrorist offences and taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody, police said. A number of pedestrians have been injured. No other suspects have been identified and police believe there is no further threat to Londoners, he said.

London Ambulance Service have confirmed that they treated two people at the scene of the incident and have taken them to hospital.

The crash occurred at 7:37 am local time, according to Metropolitan Police.

Footage on social media showed a handcuffed man being led away by heavily armed police.

"I couldn't see him doing anything stupid like that", said one neighbor, who only gave his name as Adam. When he got to the scene, he staked out Westminster before smashing his vehicle.

The Houses of Parliament have large steel and concrete security barriers, which stopped the vehicle.

Forensics officers work near the auto that crashed into security barriers outside the Houses of Parliament in London on Tuesday.


London police say that a vehicle has crashed into barriers outside the Houses of Parliament and that there are a number of injured.

Britain endured a tumultuous period following the March 22 rampage, with four further terror attacks, including three in the capital at London Bridge, Finsbury Park and Parsons Green tube station.

"I was told to move and started to run", he said.

Armed police officers stand at a cordon after a vehicle crashed outside the Houses of Parliament.

He allegedly drove through the night from Birmingham to London and toured the areas of Westminster, Whitehall and Tottenham Court Road, the Telegraph said.

He said officers had their guns out when they arrested the driver.

"It didn't look like an accident. It was a loud bang".

While paramedics have treated people for minor injuries, no one was fatally injured in the crash.

Masood abandoned his vehicle then fatally stabbed unarmed Pc Keith Palmer before he was shot by armed police in a courtyard outside Parliament.
