UK Police investigating 'incident' at parliament – reports

The Metropolitan Police are investigating an “incident” on parliament grounds, according to reports. A heavy police presence was visible.

“The police are currently investigating an incident on the parliamentary estate,” a House of Commons spokesperson said without elaborating, according to Reuters.

A “heavy” presence of officers was reported on a Ministerial corridor, where some government ministers have their offices.

Witnesses said the police were dealing with a “suspicious package,” according to reports.

A police spokesman said he was not immediately able to comment.

Britain’s parliament is currently in recess.

The Palace of Westminster was not locked down and the main Carriage Gate entrance – the scene of the attack on Westminster last March – was open as normal.
