Man 'armed with sword' attacks Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace in lockdown after alleged attack on police

A man arrested outside of Buckingham Palace after attacking police, according to authorities.

"The man was stopped at approximately 20:35 hours (1935 GMT) by officers at the Mall outside Buckingham Palace in possession of knife".

Officers stopped the man and attempted to arrest him when he was found with a knife outside the palace on Friday evening.

Twitter user Amir Jan Malik wrote: "Stuck outside Buckingham palace with many armed police officers".

The two wounded officers overpowered the assailant and arrested him just after 8.30pm.

It came amid reports on social media that a "man with a sword" had targeted police at the palace.

London police have been praised for their quick response to the attack.

During the altercation, the suspect apparently inflicted "minor injuries" on the two officers, who are otherwise reported as doing fine. They have not been taken to hospital.

"I didn't see the auto driving but the vehicle had been left at the side of the road and an eye witness had said that he had driven towards the police auto".

The officers were treated at the scene.

Queen Elizabeth was not in residence in the palace when the attack outside the palace happened.
