"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.

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.
