In a third incident, an attempted attack was foiled when counter-terrorist officers arrested the potential assailant, who was found outside parliament in possession of three knives.

Several pedestrians were injured, but police didn't believe anyone was in a life-threatening condition.

While the suspect has been detained, the vehicle remains on the scene and is being searched.

Two people were treated at the scene for injuries that are not thought to be serious, London Ambulance Service said. Authorities say detectives have established that the privately-owned Fiesta traveled from Birmingham to London on Monday night, and they're investigating two addresses in Birmingham and one in Nottingham.

Armed police swooped into the area, cordoning off streets surrounding the heart of Britain's government.

Britain endured a tumultuous period following the March 22 rampage, with four further terror attacks, including three in the capital at London Bridge, Finsbury Park and Parsons Green tube station. The first one in March a year ago claimed the lives of five people, including a police officer.

Metropolitan Police confirmed in a tweet that at 7.37am local time a vehicle collided with the barriers outside Parliament.

"At 7:37 hrs, a auto was in collision with barriers outside the Houses of Parliament".

The investigation is being led by the Met's Counter-Terrorism Command but Scotland Yard said it was "keeping an open mind".

"I think it looked intentional - the auto drove at speed and towards the barriers". The nearby Westminster Underground station was closed.

"I was walking on the other side of the road".

"I saw the auto crash into the barrier outside Westminster Palace, with smoke coming out of the vehicle". The driver of a auto injured three people before crashing into barricades near Parliament. Mr. Masood then tried to rush inside with a knife and killed a police officer before being shot dead in a courtyard area.
