London Metropolitan Police could soon introduce extra security measures at the Palace of Westminster after a night-time terror attack simulation revealed serious flaws in the protection of the UK’s parliament building.
The mock terror attack, conducted last month while the country’s MPs were in recess, saw costumed police use a boat to cross the Thames and access the building via a terrace. They then worked their way through the corridors and into the Commons chamber. The operation took around five minutes to complete.
Police sources told the Sunday Telegraph that a similar real-life event would end with the slaughter of more than 100 MPs.
