    A man has been detained by armed police officers at the gates of the House of Commons.

    Pictures from the scene show the man being pinned to the ground by police officers and Parliament has been put into lockdown. The carriage gates have been closed.

    Reports from the scene suggested that armed officers ran from the grounds of parliament and that the man had been tasered. It is also being reported that they shouted ‘knife, knife, knife.’

    Scotland Yard confirmed that a man in his 30s had been arrested on suspicion of possession of a knife at the Palace of Westminster.

    Michael Crick from Channel 4 News said that police had picked up items on the floor, believed to be keys, a belt and a mobile phone, but a black square object remained on the ground.

    Is it too early to jump to conclusions?


    never stopped you before

    What kind of moron would carry a knife (in any circumstance), but especially around the scene of recent terror attack.

    Stupidity of the highest degree and deserves to have the book thrown at him.

    I'm just glad that another evil loser (of whatever variety) has been apprehended.

    ​He might be a person with mental health issues which has got nothing to do with his faith.

    ​what reason do they have to shoot him? As we didn't know all of the information yet, we can't just shoot someone now can we.

    Is he a danger to himself or the general public?

    ​because if they can apprehend him he can go through our legal process and security services cam learn more information.

    Which goes against all their training.

    It should be simple, pull a gun or a knife on the police you get shot in the face.

    ​or even a table leg. You can't put it right when you shoot to kill and make a mistake. This day and age with suicide bombers it's more understandable but years ago there was little justification.

    should of taken him down. show no mercy . times have changed. make the change.
