A car ferrying prime minister Boris Johnson was reportedly involved in a crash after Prime Minister's Questions just outside parliament.
The crash occurred when a protester ran in front of the prime minister's convoy, which was leaving the Palace of Westminster.
The convoy was forced to an immediate stop with Johnson's car shunted by an accompanying undercover police vehicle, before speeding off.
