London Terror Attack.....One Woman Dies............

A woman has died on Westminster Bridge in central London in what police are treating as a terrorist incident.
A police officer was also stabbed in the nearby Houses of Parliament by an attacker, who was shot by police.
Several pedestrians were struck by a car on the bridge, before it crashed into railings.

Police said there were "a number of casualties... including police officers" and a "full counter-terrorism inquiry" was under way. Prime Minister Theresa May is to chair a meeting of the government's emergency Cobra committee later.

Met Police Commander BJ Harrington said he was unable to confirm details of casualties.

Speaking outside Scotland Yard he urged the public to stay away from the area around Westminster to allow emergency services access.

London Ambulance said it had treated at least 10 people on Westminster Bridge.
