A male has been detained by the Police after it is alleged that he managed to breach perimeter security and gain access to the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.
The male was quickly apprehended by the police and was taken away from the scene in a police van.
A spokesperson for the Met Police said:
‘A man was detained and arrested by Carriage Gates inside the Palace of Westminster on suspicion of trespassing at a protected site, at around 11.55hrs on Tuesday, 11 December.
‘A Taser was deployed. Enquiries into the circumstances continue.’
Parliamentary authorities have confirmed that the incident has been contained and that, at this stage, no other persons are believed to have been involved.
Reporters at the scene have claimed that they saw the man arguing with and shouting at the police during the incident.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
