www.mirror.co.uk... seems they arrested the driver so they got them alive

A driver has been arrested after a car crashed into pedestrians and ploughed into security barriers outside Parliament at the height of the morning commute. The Met Police confirmed a number of pedestrians had been injured in the incident which has put the Palace of Westminster and the surrounding area on lockdown. Armed police pulled the male driver out of the car at gunpoint. In the chaotic aftermath, a police officer was reportedly heard saying that the vehicle may have hit pedestrians or cyclists before smashing into the pedestrian barriers.

Eyewitness Ewelina U. Ochab told CNN: "I was walking on the other side of the pavement from where the incident occurred. 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."
apparently driver was male but almost no other info about them has been released it seems they plan to give more news once they have more info

Possibly suspect has some sort of mental disturbance, or it was an accident.

I say this because it happened at 7:37am, not quite peak hour.

Thoughts are with those injured.

Witness on ABC News Australia claims car was speeding before hand and appeared to be a direct smash.

www.dailymail.co.uk... this link? it appears to show a dark skinned man in a poofy jacket

Witnesses said officers initially stood back and said it seemed as if they were concerned that the car may have contained a bomb. Witness Jason Williams told ITV's Good Morning Britain that the incident was 'very, very scary', adding that he was feeling 'very anxious'. He said: 'Basically I've seen a man driving a vehicle, and he's gone into one of the bollards. There was a loud bang. 'Straight away I thought 'Oh no, this is another terrorist attack'. So I've just started to run and the police were saying 'get out, get out of the area'.
and

'I was very surprised (the police didn't go in straight away). They seemed to be standing back. They were obviously a bit wary, like what's going to happen next? 'I don't know if it was a tip-off, a warning, that this was a bomb. There seems to be maybe about 200 police here now, and it's all happened very quickly in the space of half an hour.' Police have cordoned off Millbank and Victoria Tower Gardens. Armed police, ambulances and firefighters were all on the scene.
guess we will have to wait for the update from Scotland yard but it seems the barriers did the job they were designed to do and stopped the vehicle ,and on plus side it seems that those injured do not have life threatening injuries

The driver is a really black, black dude. Is it possible he thought that area was a parking spot and raced to get it before it was taken, could be a new uber driver. Don't know what black has to do with anything, just pointing it out for those who didn't follow link cause takes forever to load dailymail with it reloading 50 frigging times!

Police treating it as terorism, not an accident and multiple witnesses have stated the car was driven deliberately. So I guess that's that until the cops release more info.

Doing that anywhere, but especially close to all the armed cops round Parliament, the fella is lucky not to have contracted chronic lead poisoning

My first guess is that it will be some lone nut job 'inspired' by IS or any one of the plethora of Islamic extremist groups.

I think safety precautions around Westminster have improved significantly since previous terrorist attacks or this could have been much, much worse.



so, we can spread some more hate.


Seems to me its the terrorists and those that 'inspire' them that are spreading the hate.
I sometimes think there'll come a point when it will be reciprocated in kind, and then......



and there is another hot story: the next james bond could be a black guy.


So what?
Idris Elba seems like a cool sort of guy; pretty regular upbringing, sense of humour, doesn't take himself too seriously, appreciates what he has, blah blah blah.



they want to destroy the white race!


Racist bigots like you give them good reason!

What on earth has any of that got to do with the thread topic?
Please take the time to enlighten us otherwise it can only be explained by racism....ATS is no place for racists!

spreading fear and hate is terrorism - so, breitbart and all this racist propaganda bs is terrorism too (and the islamic-terrorists are happy about that becauce it helps to divide societys). whats funny, nowadays there is less terror as it was in the 70s and 80s but since we have the internet, the paraonia grows.

There is no "white race" you moron just the Human race. LoL

Calling/hoping for this to be a terror attack by Muslims equates to nothing more than religious intolerant stupidity.

And Idris Elba will make a great Bond.

Wanna bet he has been on a terrorist watch list for years, travelled to Syria and other terrorist # holes countless times and been been displaying the ISIS flag and spouting terrorist views?

UK is far too soft on terrorism.

Well the UK just like a few other nations do have a hand in the creation of these terrorists by way of our actions abroad, that's just simple fact.

And waving an ISIS flag in public will indeed get you the gaol or at the very least on a government list, should your identity be established.

Nothing in your post to suggest anything like cynicism, so we have to take your words literally.

If they aren't meant to be interpreted literally you should at least give some sort of indication and you shouldn't be surprised when you get called out!

Your post made you look like a twat....I don't think I'm the only one that thought that!
