A knifeman has been arrested outside Westminster Cathedral. Police raced to the scene after searching a man acting suspiciously near the London tourist hotspot. It comes days after a man was arrested with a knife outside Buckingham Palace.
Officers said the man was found in possession of a large knife, near the cathedral in Francis Street. A spokesman for Met Police said: “At approximately 11.45am on Thursday August 31, officers on routine patrol in the Victoria Street area of Westminster attempted to speak with a man who was seen acting suspiciously in an area known for anti-social behaviour.
“The man was found in possession of a large knife. He was arrested and taken to a central London police station where he remains in custody. Enquiries continue.”
