The incident began when a car drove aggressively over Westminster Bridge, hitting a number of civilians and police officers. When the car crashed, a man with a knife attempted to enter Parliament, acting Deputy Commissioner at the Metropolitan Police Mark Rowley told BBC.
Armed police were able to stop the attacker, but Westminster is currently on lockdown until there is no longer a threat.
In the wake of the attack, some of music’s biggest names took to Twitter to share their condolences and prayers for the people of London.
May God protect everyone in London. Hate hearing this sad news. Sending my condolences to the victims' families.
