UK parliament has hit the headlines of news outlets across the world after a car crammed into the crowd. The case is announced a terrorist attack and the probe is taken by Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.
The driver, who was lonely and carried no arms with him in the car, was arrested at the scene. Investigation has been launched by the local Police who is still searching the car.
The scene of the incident has also been cordoned off to facilitate the investigations. Some roads near the UK parliament and the Westminster tube stations are closed.
The British Prime Minister expressed sorrow for those injured in the incident. In a tweet a short while after the shock, May wrote, “My thoughts are with those injured in the incident in Westminster and my thanks to the emergency services for their immediate and courageous response.”
Direct witnesses believe that the crash was not accidental and there has been a determination for it. Ewalina Ochab, one of the passersby walking across the pavement, explained on twitter that the car drove into the barriers at a speed which clearly indicated the driver’s deliberate act.
“I heard some noise, and someone screamed. I turned around and I saw a silver car driving from the crossing – very fast and close to the railings, maybe even on the pavement. The car did not have any registration plate,” Ochab said. She also noted that the police forces were soon at the scene..
The guards started screaming to people to move away. One elderly man rushed me to hide behind a monument, just in case.
The United Kingdom has been the target of multiple terrorist attacks in recent years. The country, received as a one of the main supporters of terrorism in the Middle East and across the world, has been the victim of its own traps in recent decades.
