Man arrested after allegedly vaulting parliament fence

A man has been arrested after allegedly vaulting a fence leading to parliament.

Reporters at the scene said he had been taken away in a police van, although it is not known yet why the man decided to try and break into parliament.

Police say it’s unknown how he managed to get into the estate, but Jim Pickard from the Financial Times tweeted: “A guy with a long-lens camera standing outside told me he saw the man scale the wall, no idea if this is a reliable witness or not.”
