One woman has died and a number of others have suffered 'catastrophic injuries' in the London terror attack today, a doctor has said.

The update after the terror incident near Parliament came from a junior doctor at nearby St Thomas' Hospital.

Westminster is on lockdown after what police described as a "terror attack" where a man ploughed a car into pedestrians before stabbing a police officer outside Houses of Parliament.

The assailant has been shot.
