Armed police have surrounded a auto and arrested a man after a number of pedestrians were hit before ploughing into security barriers outside Parliament today. Both were taken to hospital. I heard some noise and someone screamed.

Westminster station is closed for entry and exit, Transport for London said, and is open only for interchange between lines. "I turned around and I saw a silver vehicle driving very fast close to the railings, maybe even on the pavement", she said.

"Someone driving towards parliament at speed, it wasn't a normal, it's not a minor like accident, it's not like a road traffic incident", witness Jason Williams told Sky News. The parliament grounds have also been shut, although not many lawmakers are using the building as the United Kingdom government is in recess. "There was a loud bang", he said. The driver did not get out. It (the car) was behind me.

"Cordons are in place to assist the investigation".

"The person driving did not go out" of the vehicle, she said.

Obviously when I came back after training he wasn't there. "We will see over the next couple of days". He said: "I haven't had dealings with Dedryck's agent, it has all been through the club".

"We've had attacks over the years. When you live in London in a big city anything like this can happen", she added.

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

Security measures in the area were reinforced after the Westminster Bridge attack in March 2017.

Khalid Masood was then shot dead by armed police in that same courtyard.

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 five.
