A little before 15:00 local time explosions were heard thought to be firearm shorts outside the Houses of Parliament, also known as Westminster Palace, in the heart of the UK capital, London. The building is in lockdown and the House of Commons session taking place was suspended. Police are treating it as a terrorist incident.
A woman has died and according to David Lidington, leader of the House of Commons, the attacker was shot by police outside the building. It is thought that the man first drove down Westminster Bridge in a car mowing down several pedestrians to then crash into the palace gates. From here he ran towards the parliament building and stabbed a police officer.
Reports state that dozens of people have been wounded on Westminster Bridge. UK Prime Minister Theresa May is reported to be safe. Westminster underground station nearby has been shut down at the request of police.
