A auto crash outside the Houses of Parliament which left two people in hospital on Tuesday morning is being treated as a terror attack, say investigators.

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

Footage on social media showed a handcuffed man being ledaway by heavily armed police.

Speaking to the press, Basu confirmed that the suspect was not known to security services.

The area is in lockdown after armed police swarmed the scene on Tuesday morning (local time).

LONDON -London's Metropolitan Police say that they are treating the crash outside of Parliament as a terrorist incident.

Two people were taken to local hospitals after the vehicle crashed near the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday, but authorities said the injuries aren't believed to be life-threatening.

Stokes' England teammate next in crosshairs in affray case
Stokes, 27, has developed into one of England's most influential players and took six wickets in the opening Test in Birmingham. The jury at Bristol Crown Court took under three hours to acquit Stokes and Ali of affray following a seven day trial.

This is a developing story. We will focus on reports from police officials and other authorities, credible news outlets and reporters who are at the scene.

None of the injured are believed to be in life-threatening condition, according to London police. "I've seen people, about 10, on the road, lying down, but I haven't seen any fatalities", Williams said.

Britain endured a tumultuous period following the March 22 rampage, with four further terror attacks, including three in the capital at London Bridge, Finsbury Park and Parsons Green tube station. The man in the vehicle has been arrested and is in a police station in south London.

"We must keep an open mind about what has happened and I'm sure when they do have more information they will say more". "I turned around and I saw a silver auto driving from the crossing - very fast and close to the railings, maybe even on the pavement", Ochab said.

Police said they could not immediately say whether it was a terrorism-related incident or not. The parliament grounds have also been shut, although not many lawmakers are using the building as the United Kingdom government is in recess.

Less than three months later, a van rammed into pedestrians on London Bridge before three men abandoned the vehicle and attacked weekend revellers in the nearby Borough Market.

"I was told basically to move away, to run".
