Nearby Westminster Underground station was closed and the building cordoned off.

It is unclear if the incident was terror related.

U.S. President Donald Trump was less measured, tweeting that the crash was "another terrorist attack in London". He said the auto "actually came off the ground and landed again" as it slammed into the barrier and there was "a lot of smoke".

"I was going to continue towards Parliament, but was told to get off my bike".

Superintendent Chris Horton from British Transport Police, said: "We know incidents such as this are likely to cause concern, so our officers will be highly visible both on board trains and at stations".

"I wasn't sure whether he meant to hit the cyclists, they might have just been in the way, but once he did, he accelerated towards the barrier".

Police were still working on formally identifying the man, who is "not cooperating", said Basu, adding that the driver was not thought to have been known to MI5 or counter-terrorism police.

No information on the number of victims was initially released, but witnesses say several injuries were visible on the scene.

The cordon has been widened twice and sniffer dogs have been seen in the area.

Another witness said a man in a black jacket was removed from the auto by police, adding that the attack took place near the House of Lords, the U.K.'s upper chamber of Parliament. In that attack, Masood leapt from his smashed auto with a knife and began slashing at police and passersby.
