Boris Johnson’s ministerial Jaguar has been involved in a road traffic collision in Westminster after a Kurdish protester seemed to run towards a police outrider who was leading the convoy.
In the footage below, the police motorbike can be seen to lead the way as the small motorcade leaves Westminster.
A group of protesters can be seen with Kurdish flags and loudhailers as they shout at the motorcade.
According to the Press Association, the man had been demonstrating with a group outside Parliament about Turkey’s operation against Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq.
As the police motorcyclist turns right, a male wearing grey can be seen to run towards him with both of his hands reaching out as if to try and grab the handlebars of the police bike.
An officer who was on foot can also be seen to try and pull the male protester out of the way.

The police motorcyclist is forced to make an emergency stop to avoid colliding with the male protester.
The ministerial Jaguar is then also forced to do an emergency stop at which point a black Range Rover – that was part of the convoy – hits the back of the Jaguar, causing the occupants to lurch forwards.
The police motorcyclist then stops his bike to detain the male protester, as the ministerial Jaguar and black Range Rover continue onwards.
The ministerial Jaguar can be seen with damage to its rear end as the motorcade continues towards their destination.
A spokesman told Sky News that the Prime Minister was travelling in the car at the time.
Additional officers are then needed as other protests surround the male who lunged towards the police motorcyclist.
