This doesn't sound good.

Reports of shots fired close to the Houses of Parliament.

I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

Also Falkirk, Dunfermline and Stirling but these are rarely used for free previews.

RIP to the three innocent people including the police officer who died in today's terrorist attack in Westminster, London. My thoughts and prayers go out to them, their families and all those who were injured or affected by today's tragedy.

Just want to say how amazing our police & emergency services are, how quickly they respond in the face of such atrocity & terror and how grateful I am for all that they do to protect us.
