By Nina Massey

A second man has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences after three police officers were injured in an alleged terrorist incident outside Buckingham Palace on Friday night.

The 30-year-old from west London was detained on suspicion of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism, the Metropolitan Police said.

The arrest was carried out by officers from the Met's counter terrorism command who are investigating the incident in Constitution Hill which resulted in three officers being injured.

Officers have also been granted a warrant for the further detention of a 26-year-old man who was arrested at the scene.

The man who was arrested yesterday is being held in custody and an address in west London is being searched.

Shortly after 8.30pm on Friday a suspect deliberately drove a car at police outside Buckingham Palace and then reached for a 4ft sword, police said.
