Pedestrians injured in crash outside Parliament in London
14 August 2018 – A car slammed into security barriers outside the Houses of Parliament this morning, injuring a number of pedestrians.
The area was the site of a terror attack in March 2017 when Khalid Masood ploughed a car into crowds on Westminster Bridge, killing four people. Masood abandoned his car then stabbed and killed a police officer before being shot in a courtyard outside Parliament.
In today’s incident, the car slammed into barriers that had been extended following the Westminster Bridge attack. Video from local news channels showed a man being detained.
Eyewitnesses quoted in British media said they thought the crash looked deliberate.
