It is being reported that Parliament and Downing Street is in 'lock down'. due to a fire arms incident.

David Liddington has called a halt to today's proceedings.

It is being reported the attacker has been shot and a Police Officer has been stabbed. Looks like a car mounted the pavement on Westminster Bridge and the driver ran off towards Westminster.

Bad news.

Been watching this on tv. It seems many people were hurt on the bridge by the car.

I think 5 people have been run over on Westminster Bridge. Awful news, always worried abou terrorist attacks in London my children work there, just as I did during the IRA atrocities. I guess we won't know the full extent of this till later. Lets hope there aren't any fatalities amongst the general public or police officers. Not bothered about the assailants they can go to hell.

Makes you wonder what was 'known' or is it a coincidence the government have put restrictions on air travel by Saturday.

Dreadful, poor victims.

Another co incidence was the 'practice' terrorist incident ( for want of a different description) on the Thames at the week end.

I'm sure more is known than we will ever be told.

I have asked GNHQ to join this thread to Lillie's as we both started a thread at the same time on this subject.

Apologies to posters on this thread GNHQ say they CANNOT join the two threads.

Abysmal. We need to stay out of other peoples/countries affairs.
