Police cannot confirm that the incident has concluded.— Peter Anderson, EWN
A policeman was stabbed inside the perimeter of Britain's parliament building on Wednesday, an assailant was shot outside and several people lay bleeding on a nearby bridge, Reuter’s witnesses and officials said.
The House of Commons, which was in session at the time, was immediately suspended and lawmakers were asked to stay inside.
The leader of the House, David Lidington, said in the chamber that an assailant who stabbed a policeman had been shot by police.
Amid confusing scenes, it appeared the incident may have unfolded in several locations, including the busy bridge where tourists often congregate to take pictures of Big Ben and other attractions.
The incident took place on the first anniversary of attacks on Brussels in Belgium.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed EWN UK Correspondent Peter Anderson.
