British armed police detained a man on suspicion of having a knife after he ran, shouting, toward one of the gates of the Westminster parliament in central London on Friday.
“The man – aged in his 30s – was arrested,” police said.
A witness at the scene told Reuters the man ran toward one of the gates to parliament where a militant killed a policeman less than three months ago.
“You could tell he was suspicious, he was stood there fists clenched. He looked quite an angry geezer,” Bradley Allen, 19, told Reuters.
“We got seconds down the road and they had him on the floor, pinned. Police around him, telling everyone to move back.”
