Terror attack at UK Parliament

A woman has died on Westminster Bridge in central London in what police are treating as a terrorist incident, the BBC reports.

A police officer was also stabbed in the nearby Houses of Parliament by an attacker, who was shot by police.

The attacker struck several pedestrians as he drove a car across the bridge, before crashing it into railings.

A doctor at St Thomas’ Hospital said a number of other people were hurt – some with “catastrophic” injuries.

A Downing Street source said Prime Minister Theresa May was safe, according to the BBC
