Watching the armed officers remove the man from the vehicle wreck, cuff him and arrest him - there is a calmness and professionalism there that you don't see with armed police in some other countries.

British police said they believe a man deliberately drove a vehicle into pedestrians and cyclists on Tuesday before ramming it into barriers outside London's parliament in what appeared to be the second terrorism attack on the building in just under 18 months.

"At this stage, we are treating this as a terrorist incident and the Met's Counter Terrorism Command is now leading the investigation", the Metropolitan Police spokesman said. The injuries don't appear to be life-threatening, they said.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said he was in close contact with police and enquiries were continuing.

Police moved bystanders away from the scene and closed roads in the area. "Officers remain at the scene", it said.

Police say they are lifting cordons that had sealed off much of London's Westminster government district after a vehicle crashed into Parliament, injuring three people.

Streets around Parliament Square, Millbank and Victoria Tower Gardens have been cordoned off while police, ambulances and firefighters arrived at the scene.

Armed officers swarmed the scene following the suspected terror attack and the man, wearing a black puffer jacket, was led away in handcuffs from a Ford Fiesta.

Armed police officers attended the scene in Westminster this morning after a vehicle collided with the security barriers outside the Palace of Westminster.

Parliament is now on summer recess, and isn't due to reconvene until early September, meaning the Houses are fairly quiet at the moment.

Prime Minister Theresa May tweeted: "My thoughts are with those injured in the incident in Westminster and my thanks to the emergency services for their immediate and courageous response".

Police said that the driver of auto, a man, was arrested at scene after the incident which took place at 7:37 a.m. Tuesday in London. There was a loud bang from the collusion and a bit if smoke.

The driver was arrested at the scene on suspicion of terrorism offenses.
