REUTERS: A number of people were injured after a car collided with security barriers outside London’s parliament building on Tuesday (August 14) and a man who drove the vehicle was arrested, police said.

“The male driver of the car was detained by officers at the scene. A number of pedestrians have been injured. Officers remain at the scene. We will issue further info when we have it,” London’s police force said in a statement on Twitter.

The area outside the parliament building in central London was cordoned off and surrounded by emergency service vehicles after the incident.

Police said they could not immediately say whether it was a terrorism-related incident or not.
