Bloody hell. Only found out from this thread. Awful.

A friend who works in Parliament has said the assailant wasn't shot dead, and has been taken to hospital

They've all been sent back to their departments and Parliament remains on lockdown

In his 40's according to sky news -Asian male both him and the police officer he stabbed being treated and the pedestrians ran over- must have been terrifying for them sad

Where is the car driver?

Is he shot or was the man that stabbed the police officer shot?

Sorry - I said "hope everyone is ok/well"

Apart from the assailant, I think everyone is alive. Am I right?
