The 29-year-old British citizen, originally from Sudan, is being questioned in south London. Police have been searching three addresses in Birmingham and Nottingham as part of their investigation. Three people were injured after the vehicle hit cyclists and pedestrians during Tuesday morning’s rush hour. The silver Ford Fiesta then crashed into security barriers outside the Houses of Parliament just before 07:40 BST. The suspect is not believed to have been known to MI5 or counter-terrorism police, but is understood to have been known to local police. He did not co-operate with officers after his arrest, Scotland Yard said. Two people were taken to hospital after the crash and later discharged while a third was treated for minor injuries at the scene.
