Armed Police Pin Down Intruder Outside Houses Of Parliament

Armed Police Pin Down Intruder Outside Houses Of Parliament

The Mirror reports a suspected 'intruder' in the Houses of Parliament has been tasered and pinned to the ground by armed police causing a lock down.

The incident is said to have happened just before midday inside Carriage Gates, very near to where PC Keith Palmer was killed only last year.

Footage from the incident shows the 'intruder' surrounded by armed officers - and being held at gun point.

It is currently unknown whether the suspect was armed or what his intention was upon entering the Houses.

Metropolitan Police said in a statement: "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."

The House of Commons tweeted: "We are aware of a situation outside the Palace of Westminster that was handled by the Met Police and is now over."
