The area around Downing Street is in lockdown after armed police arrested a man, while officers in forensic suits took photos of knives on the ground.

Reports claim two knives, including a breadknife, were discovered on the ground, although it has not yet been confirmed the man arrested was carrying them.

Police have confirmed no one has been injured, but the incident has sent shockwaves through London, coming just weeks after the horrific terror attack on Parliament.
