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.
