A motorist slammed into pedestrians and cyclists near Britain's Houses of Parliament on Tuesday and police are treating the incident as an act of terror.

Armed police patrol the scene on Victoria Embankment in Westminster.

Images posted online showed a man wearing a black puffer jacket being led away in handcuffs from the auto as armed police swarmed the scene. They are reportedly not known to MI5 or the country's counterterrorism police, according to the BBC.

Scotland Yard said yesterday (August 14) that the suspect, who was arrested at the scene, was not co-operating with police.

The crash which took place at 7:37 in the morning, injured a number of pedestrians Tuesday. Officers remain at the scene.

No other details were immediately available, but Metropolitan Police said on Twitter that they will issue more information when they have it. "I suspect this will reignite the debate on whether the whole of Parliament Square should be pedestrianized to ensure that anybody can't weaponize a vehicle and disrupt and indeed destroy our democracy", he said.

London Ambulance Service have confirmed that they treated two people at the scene of the incident and have taken them to hospital.
