Armed British police detained a man inside the grounds of parliament in Westminster on Tuesday.
The man was later pinned down to the ground while armed officers surrounded him, with one pointing a gun at the man’s head
Police said it was too early to say if it was a terror related incident, and they have not yet found a weapon on the scene.
“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,” the Met said.
“A taser was deployed. Enquiries into the circumstances continue.”
A picture from the scene shows a man in red shoes, jeans and a green jacket being held down by three police officers while a third one points a gun at him.
The incident happened at same gate that was attacked last year.
On March 22, 2017, Briton Khalid Masood drove a car into pedestrians along Westminster Bridge injuring more than 50 people, five of them fatally. Masood then crashed his vehicle into parliament’s perimeter fence, getting out and fatally stabbing an unarmed police officer, PC Keith Palmer, to death, before being fatally shot by his colleagues.
Security around parliament has significantly increased, since the incident.
