A CROWD of pedestrians has been injured after they were hit by a vehicle outside the British Houses of Parliament at Westminster in London.

In March 2017, Khalid Masood, 52, killed four people on nearby Westminster Bridge before he stabbed to death an unarmed police officer in the grounds of Parliament.

"At this stage, officers do not believe that anybody is in a life-threatening condition", Metropolitan Police said on Twitter.

The Met Police confirmed a number of pedestrians have been injured, while they have installed a "terror incident cordon" in place, but are not commenting on the reasons for the collision.

Officers remain on the scene.

Trade Talks with Mexico Going Well; Canada Should Wait
The US and Mexico, which have been in bilateral negotiations for about three weeks, appear to be getting close to an agreement. He has also made repeated threats to apply far more damaging tariffs on the deeply integrated automotive sector.

The scene has been cordoned off, with the cordon widening as more police, including counter terrorism officers, arrive on the scene.

Photographs on social media showed the alleged driver in handcuffs being escorted away by police.

A witness, Ewalina Ochab, said: "I think it looked intentional - the vehicle drove at speed and towards the barriers".

Paramedics could be seen tending to at least one person near the scene of the crash. "I was walking on the other side (of the road)".

"We're kind of stuck waiting to hear from our bosses what to do", she said. He was shot dead at the scene.

The measures were extended in the wake of the Westminster Bridge attack in March 2017 when Khalid Masood ploughed a auto into crowds on Westminster Bridge, killing four people.
