London police on Friday arrested a man at the fence surrounding the British parliament on suspicion of carrying a knife, which comes nearly three months after a terror attack in the same area.
The man was detained at 11:10 am (1010 GMT) by the Palace of Westminster in central London, police said in a statement.
“The man –aged in his 30s– was arrested on suspicion of possession of a knife. There are no reports of any injuries,” the brief statement said.
A parliamentary spokesman said: “We are aware of an incident outside the Palace of Westminster, which is being dealt with by the Metropolitan Police.”
