It has been reported that at least 40 people have been injured and five killed during a suspected lone wolf extremist attack, outside the Houses of Parliament.

The police are treating the incident as terror related. Witnesses have said the man drove a car at civilians on Westminster Bridge, he then crashed into railings, left the car and ran into Houses of Parliament and stabbed a police officer. The attacker was then shot by armed police, whilst wielding his knife towards a second officer. Both the Policeman and the attacker have died. Two civilian bystanders have been confirmed to have died due to the car crash on Westminister bridge.

The BBC have reported that the police officer killed in a terror attack at Westminster has been named by the Met Police as PC Keith Palmer.
