A man in his 20s deliberately drove into a group of cyclists before ramming into security barriers outside the British Parliament building during yesterday morning's rush hour in London.

Three people were injured, though none seriously, and police surrounded the suspect in his car and arrested him on suspicion of terrorism offences.

The incident yesterday was the second attack on Parliament in just under 18 months.
