Police have confirmed at least five people have been killed and 40 injured in a terrorist attack outside the Houses of Parliament in London.

Authorities say a car plowed into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, before a man, believed to be the driver of the vehicle , stabbed a police officer to death out the front of Parliament.

The attacker was shot dead by officers.

“The attack started when a car was driven over Westminster Bridge, hitting and injuring a number of members of the public, also including three police officers,”  Mark Rowley, Britain’s most senior counter-terrorism officer said.

“A car then crashed near to Parliament and at least one man, armed with a knife continued the attack and tried to enter Parliament.”

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has confirmed no Australians were caught up in the attack.
