The Metropolitan Police said they were called out to reports of a suspicious vehicle but the incident has since been stood down.

There is a heavy police presence on the streets of the capital today following a terrorist attack at Westminster yesterday afternoon.

The incident, in which an attacker drove along the pavement of Westminster Bridge and then stabbed a police officer, left four people dead. The assailant was shot by police.
