Trump tweets on London 'terrorist attack' as investigation gets underway

Houses of Parliament crash

London's Metropolitan Police say that they are treating the crash outside of Parliament as a terrorist incident. No weapons were found in the vehicle. There was a loud bang from the collusion and a bit if smoke.

"He made no attempt to slow down as he hit the cyclists", said Robert Nicholson, 36, who was on his way to work.

"I must be honest, I've got a young son and a wife and my initial reaction was as long as paramedics were seeing to the woman, I wanted to get away from the incident".

Witness Jason Williams said the vehicle hit a barrier on a lane used for access to the parliament building with force.

There was nobody else in the vehicle and no weapons were found, police said.

Mr Phillips praised the bravery of the officers who arrived swiftly on the scene just minutes after the crash occurred. "We will issue further info when we have it", London's police force said in a statement on Twitter.

In 2017, 52-year-old Briton Khalid Masood rammed his vehicle into pedestrians on the pavement along the south side of the Westminster Bridge, injuring more than 50 people and killing 5. The attacker was shot and killed by police.

Three people - a police officer and two civilians - were killed and dozens wounded by a lone attacker near Britain's Parliament in London in March previous year.

The suspect, reportedly from the Midlands, located in Central England and was described as "uncooperative" by law enforcement, and transported to an undisclosed police station in southern London.

Richard Russell , a 29-year-old Horizon Air employee, was suicidal and made a decision to hijack the 76-seat plane around 8 p.m. Russell joked to air traffic controllers that he could do fly the plane because he had played so many video games.

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

"I was walking on the other side [of the road]".

Barry Williams, a BBC member of staff based at Millbank, said: "I heard lots of screams and turned round".

A witness told Reuters that the man had struck a barrier in a lane reserved for vehicles set to enter Parliament, adding that the damage to the auto looked "serious".

Officers were seen surrounding the vehicle before a man in his late 20s was arrested, shortly after 7.30 in the morning local time.
