Buckingham Palace Terror Alert – Second Man Arrested

A 30-year-old man is held by police after officers outside the Royal residence were attacked by a terror suspect with a 4ft sword.

A second man has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences after three police officers were attacked outside Buckingham Palace. The 30-year-old from west London is suspected of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism, Met Police said.

On Friday, a 26-year-old man from Luton was arrested after injuring three officers in Constitution Hill, a restricted area close to the Royal residence, shortly after 8.30pm. The suspect drove a blue Toyota Prius “deliberately” at a marked patrol car before being confronted by officers. He then reached for a 4ft sword in the passenger footwell and repeatedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” – God is greatest – during a struggle with officers, police said.
