A man has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences after a car swerved into pedestrians and cyclists in Westminster
One woman was being treated in hospital for serious but non life-threatening injuries following the incident near the Houses of Parliament.
Scotland Yard’s head of counter terrorism Neil Basau: “Given that this appears to be a deliberate act, the method and this being an iconic site, we are treating it as a terrorist incident.”
He added there was “no intelligence at this time of further danger” to London or the UK as a whole.
The suspect is believed to be from the Birmingham area.
