Buckingham Palace in lockdown after alleged attack on police

A man was arrested on Friday (Aug 25) after attacking police with a knife outside Queen Elizabeth II's Buckingham Palace residency in London, police said.

The man was believed to have a sword and two officers were injured when restraining the suspect.

Footage on Sky News showed emergency vehicles lining the street outside the palace.

"Officers are on scene at the Mall outside Buckingham Palace".

"A few minutes later police came by to have us clear the area and move further away from the palace". "Everything on lockdown, heavily armed police seem calm".

During the arrest two officers suffered minor injuries to their arms. One observer said that police searched water with boats.

"The London Ambulance Service were called and they were treated at the scene".

Officers remain on scene and enquiries are ongoing.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said she would not comment on security issues.
