    From live news reports. A person ran at police with a knife in the grounds of old palace yard, stabbing one police officer, the assailant was shot by police. Both are currently being treated at the scene. Also on Westminster Bridge a black 'SUV' drove into several people, injuries reported and paramedics on scene. It looks like the vehicle came to a halt and hit a cyclist but not sure what brought it to a halt.

    Police: This is being treated as a terrorist incident. Unless we learn otherwise.

    MSNBC tv is covering live. Scary. Witness believes one officer is deceased.

    ETA: witness in parliament building says police came in and told them to move away from windows--he's ignoring that advice/order

    Different witnesses (had been on bus) say they saw multiple people down. Estimated 10.

    In the US, they won't call it a ' terrorist' attack even though it's very clear that is what has happened. Glad to see UK MSM calling a spade a spade.

    I was dreading the madness starting up again. Thanks for all your updates everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims.

    Just heard a live interview on BBC with a gentleman saying he thought he saw someone over the side of the bridge in the water

    Hopefully the perp.

    Sadly it might be the Policeman.
    Anyone who know doesn't know London, this bridge is usually very busy with pedestrians with many deep both sides, at the time of the attack a lot would have been tourists imo.
