A line of red buses and several ambulances could be seen on Westminster Bridge.

Alex Wafer, 47, who was cycling nearby and saw the aftermath, said: “At the end of the embankment it appears as though there is an ambulance.

“It looks as if they are treating somebody.

“And just below, it looks like there may be another paramedic treating someone else.”
