have been injured. There will be continuing coverage of this

:00:00.:00:00.

developing story on the BBC News Channel.

:00:00.:00:08.

Welcome to the Scottish Parliament, where today's debate on a second

:00:09.:00:11.

independence referendum was suspended after this afternoon's

:00:12.:00:12.

The fact our sister Parliament has had a serious incident is affecting

:00:13.:00:28.

this debate and is affecting the contribution of members, so it is

:00:29.:00:32.

for that reason we have decided to suspend the sitting.

:00:33.:00:37.

We'll have the latest from Westminster, where a major

:00:38.:00:39.

security operation is still going on at the Houses of Parliament.

:00:40.:00:42.

And security has also been increased here at Holyrood, with a heavy

:00:43.:00:45.

Holyrood is tonight reeling from the terrorist

:00:46.:01:04.

attack on its sister parliament at Westminster.

:01:05.:01:07.

News of the attack came as MSPs debated asking for powers to hold

:01:08.:01:10.

That debate was halted just before 4pm this afternoon as news

:01:11.:01:15.

from London filtered into the chamber.

:01:16.:01:18.

Our political editor Brian Taylor reports.

:01:19.:01:26.

A normal comic indeed smiling star, to what turned out to be a hideously

:01:27.:01:35.

abnormal day. Nicola Sturgeon announcing ?2 million support for

:01:36.:01:41.

children. She is doing the day job alongside the referendum debate.

:01:42.:01:44.

Questions to the Prime Minister. alongside the referendum debate.

:01:45.:01:49.

noon, at Westminster, business seemed as usual. She has delayed and

:01:50.:01:57.

blocked... The SNP's Angus Robertson pressing the Prime Minister over a

:01:58.:02:01.

special EU deal for Scotland. Theresa May setting Scotland was in

:02:02.:02:05.

her thoughts, but firmly within the UK. At heart we are one people. In

:02:06.:02:13.

the afternoon back at Holyrood First Minister and Deputy arrived four-day

:02:14.:02:17.

two of the debate, but steadily the grim news filtered through from

:02:18.:02:21.

Westminster. The decision was taken to close down the debate for the

:02:22.:02:27.

day. The fact our sister Parliament has had a serious incident is

:02:28.:02:31.

affecting this debate and the contribution of members. It is for

:02:32.:02:37.

that reason we have decided to suspend the sitting. As MSP is

:02:38.:02:42.

streamed out, most backed the decision. Everyone is really worried

:02:43.:02:45.

about what is happening at Westminster and it seems more

:02:46.:02:50.

appropriate to suspended until we know more details. Some things are

:02:51.:02:55.

bigger than day-to-day politics? Absolutely, many things are bigger.

:02:56.:03:01.

This is an attack on us all and until there is clarity, the sensible

:03:02.:03:06.

thing is to suspend. I do not think it looks good, given what we are

:03:07.:03:09.

discussing just now, to press ahead with that in the face of a

:03:10.:03:14.

disturbing, alarming and potentially very tragic situation down south.

:03:15.:03:20.

The situation is of deep concern to all of us and democracy is precious,

:03:21.:03:25.

it is important it is protected. It is terrible news, but I take the

:03:26.:03:29.

strong view we should never give in to terrorism and it was a mistake to

:03:30.:03:34.

suspend the business of Parliament today on a really important issue

:03:35.:03:38.

for Scotland. We really have to send a message to people out there that

:03:39.:03:44.

we do not react to terrorism and we should continue with our normal

:03:45.:03:49.

business. I have huge sympathy for what has happened in Westminster

:03:50.:03:53.

naturally, but we should not be giving in to terrorism. At the

:03:54.:03:58.

Palace of Westminster, a crisis, a lockdown. At Hollywood's silent

:03:59.:04:03.

chamber and safety first security, democracy requiring vigilance.

:04:04.:04:04.

As you intimated, this was an attack on democracy and a place you know

:04:05.:04:16.

very well. I worked for many years at the House of Commond and my other

:04:17.:04:22.

son was born in Saint Thomas' hospital where many of the wounded

:04:23.:04:26.

were taken. Alongside the concern for the Palace of Westminster and

:04:27.:04:32.

the concern for the political and security implications, one cannot

:04:33.:04:37.

help thinking as an analyst of the individual people unwittingly and

:04:38.:04:38.

unwillingly caught up in this tragedy. There is heightened

:04:39.:04:44.

security here and I understand the First Minister is involved in talks?

:04:45.:04:50.

There is heightened security, but there is no direct evidence of an

:04:51.:04:55.

actual threat to Scotland. The Scottish government met this

:04:56.:04:59.

afternoon and ministers in that committee will meet this evening to

:05:00.:05:03.

review the situation. Of course in the light of an event like this

:05:04.:05:06.

everyone thinks whether it might happen again and where it might

:05:07.:05:12.

strike. To go back briefly to the events in the chamber, I understand

:05:13.:05:17.

there was some opposition to the debate being halted. There was. It

:05:18.:05:21.

was confirmed that Roseanna debate being halted. There was. It

:05:22.:05:27.

Cunningham, the Cabinet minister, was unhappy about the proposal to

:05:28.:05:30.

suspend. Initially it was thought the debate would carry on. But she

:05:31.:05:38.

realised it and then was able to get the full seriousness of it. I am

:05:39.:05:42.

certain she is backing the decision to suspend. It is because of the

:05:43.:05:51.

energy and the anxiety that arises because of events that we have no

:05:52.:05:54.

control over. They will either hold the debate again tomorrow or next

:05:55.:06:01.

week. Whatever happens, political and Parliamentary debate will

:06:02.:06:03.

continue here at Holyrood and at Westminster.

:06:04.:06:07.

Our political correspondent Nick Eardley was on the streets

:06:08.:06:09.

of Westminster as the terror attack began.

:06:10.:06:10.

Here is his report into how events unfolded.

:06:11.:06:15.

Go! Terror at the heart of British democracy. Get down! One of London's

:06:16.:06:30.

busiest tourist spots. At the moment it is not clear what is going on

:06:31.:06:35.

behind me. We have just seen the police darting along there and what

:06:36.:06:39.

looked like ministerial car is being rushed away. An incident the police

:06:40.:06:44.

are treating as a terror attack. Within minutes of reported gunshots

:06:45.:06:48.

sitting outside the BBC's Westminster office. There are

:06:49.:06:55.

reports that someone has been shot. Armed police flooding into

:06:56.:06:58.

Parliament, Westminster going into lockdown. On the other side of this

:06:59.:07:03.

iconic building a car hit members of the public and police officers, a

:07:04.:07:08.

man armed with a knife tried to enter parliament. Four were killed,

:07:09.:07:14.

among them a police officer. A guide to the police by surprise and ran

:07:15.:07:17.

through and took one policeman down and as another one approached he got

:07:18.:07:21.

up and he had a knife and that is when I heard gunfire. Parliament was

:07:22.:07:30.

suspended. In order, order, I am now going to suspend the house. The

:07:31.:07:38.

SNP's Westminster leader sits on the joint intelligence committee. In

:07:39.:07:41.

these circumstances it is important to reflect that whether they were

:07:42.:07:45.

police officers or security staff from the Palace of Westminster, they

:07:46.:07:48.

were there to help everybody and that is what they were doing and

:07:49.:07:53.

when everybody else is being told to run away from danger, those are the

:07:54.:07:56.

people running into the face of danger and it is humbling to think

:07:57.:08:00.

people would be prepared to put their lives on the line to save

:08:01.:08:07.

people they do not know. Tonight Westminster remains in lockdown, a

:08:08.:08:11.

year to the day after attacks on the European Parliament in Brussels. It

:08:12.:08:16.

appears democracy is the target of terrorism once again.

:08:17.:08:17.

And we can cross to David Porter now in Westminster.

:08:18.:08:26.

David, what did you witness? Jackie, an extraordinary day at Westminster

:08:27.:08:35.

and a very harrowing one in which you saw raw panic on the faces of

:08:36.:08:40.

people who work in Parliament, who think they are saved in Parliament.

:08:41.:08:46.

I am about 200 yards away from where the attack took place and that is

:08:47.:08:50.

the closest we can get because the area is in what police are calling a

:08:51.:08:55.

lockdown. Everything has been shut off and there are police cordon is

:08:56.:08:58.

lockdown. Everything has been shut everywhere. I was outside one for

:08:59.:09:02.

some time and it was pretty obvious from very early on that the police

:09:03.:09:05.

were treating this extremely seriously. A huge number of police

:09:06.:09:11.

involved and we are used to armed police here at Westminster on the

:09:12.:09:15.

gates of the houses of parliament, but this was a very serious incident

:09:16.:09:20.

which the police realised had the potential to be extremely serious.

:09:21.:09:25.

Four people have been killed, 20 people have been injured. Today here

:09:26.:09:31.

at Westminster I think Westminster and the family fears this is an

:09:32.:09:36.

attack upon itself. Describe for us if you would the situation right

:09:37.:09:44.

now. What is it like to be there? It is still an immense police operation

:09:45.:09:49.

under way. You can probably hear the sirens behind me and see the blue

:09:50.:09:53.

lights across the river and things like that. It is now just over a

:09:54.:10:00.

four hours since the incident began. The police are still conducting a

:10:01.:10:04.

very tight sweep of the area. They are looking very closely at various

:10:05.:10:09.

places in the House of Commond. At one point MPs were in effect blocked

:10:10.:10:13.

in the chamber in the House of Commond when the Commons was

:10:14.:10:17.

suspended. Data on this afternoon MPs and their staff were moved over

:10:18.:10:23.

to Westminster Abbey so the police could actually look closely at what

:10:24.:10:27.

was happening in the Palace of Westminster, but also to interview

:10:28.:10:31.

all those people who had been involved in this dreadful incident.

:10:32.:10:35.

Here at Holyrood security has been tightened, although it's

:10:36.:10:38.

being emphasised that there's no intelligence to suggest

:10:39.:10:40.

Glenn Campbell reports now on how parliament's are protected.

:10:41.:10:50.

Whether it is Westminster or here at Holyrood, Parliaments in the UK do

:10:51.:10:57.

take security really seriously. When this building was going up a changed

:10:58.:11:04.

the design to curb in this massive blast wall of solid concrete and

:11:05.:11:08.

that change was made following the terrorist attacks on the United

:11:09.:11:13.

States on 9/11. In the years since then security has been kept under

:11:14.:11:18.

constant review. For instance, these bonfires have been added to the

:11:19.:11:23.

defence of architecture on the Parliamentary estate. That happened

:11:24.:11:26.

following the attack on Glasgow Airport. The most recent change,

:11:27.:11:33.

though, it is the addition of a new, public entrance to the Scottish

:11:34.:11:38.

Parliament. This block has been added on, taking airport style

:11:39.:11:42.

security screening away from the main building. There is talk to

:11:43.:11:46.

somebody who knows about security, a man in charge of policing this area

:11:47.:11:53.

of Edinburgh at one point. How hard is it for police and the security

:11:54.:11:56.

services to keep ahead of those who would do us harm? It is constantly

:11:57.:12:02.

evolving and the plan has to be refined literally week after week,

:12:03.:12:08.

gathering information about what is happening in the UK and in Europe

:12:09.:12:12.

and other parts of the world. The plan will be refined and rehearsed

:12:13.:12:18.

constantly. Will today's incident make a difference? Will it change

:12:19.:12:22.

the way Parliaments and other public buildings are protected? Yes, it

:12:23.:12:28.

will. Once we find that what has happened and analyse it, there will

:12:29.:12:32.

be changes to the plan. But it is not just policing that evolves,

:12:33.:12:36.

politicians and their staff keep personal security under review.

:12:37.:12:41.

There's talk about personal safety with two newly elected MSP 's. Ross

:12:42.:12:47.

Thomson, what has your experience been like since becoming an MSP? I

:12:48.:12:54.

was a new MSP in May and it has been a learning curve and you do not

:12:55.:12:58.

expect to think about your own personal security. You expect to

:12:59.:13:01.

learn everything else about the building, but not about keeping

:13:02.:13:08.

yourself safe. We have had some incidents and I am quite happy to

:13:09.:13:12.

deal with that, but for the staff who work in my office it is not

:13:13.:13:17.

fair. We have to be accessible, but you also have to take into account

:13:18.:13:22.

personal security. You have served at Westminster, have you ever felt

:13:23.:13:28.

unsafe doing your job? You have to accept it as part of the job. I have

:13:29.:13:33.

had several death threats over the years, I had a shooting threat

:13:34.:13:39.

against me at my office previously. Like Ross said, it is important to

:13:40.:13:44.

reflect on the security risks, but also the risks to all the staff and

:13:45.:13:49.

the staff who work in and around the Parliament on the front line. There

:13:50.:13:56.

is a balance to be struck between the security and accessibility of

:13:57.:14:02.

our politics. The debate about that will intensify following today's

:14:03.:14:02.

attack. Scottish Parliament's Presiding

:14:03.:14:05.

Officer Ken McIntosh announced that the debate in Holyrood

:14:06.:14:06.

was being suspended around How did you learn of what was

:14:07.:14:22.

happening in London? Can I first of all say on behalf of all my

:14:23.:14:25.

colleagues here in Parliament house sorry and sad we are at the loss of

:14:26.:14:31.

life and those affected today. It is very tragic to think of the lives

:14:32.:14:35.

cut short and the families who will be inconsolable tonight that this

:14:36.:14:38.

cruel and senseless violence. You work in the chamber. Yes, as you can

:14:39.:14:45.

imagine in this day of modern media, reports were beginning to circulate

:14:46.:14:51.

almost immediately. I was in the chair, my clerks began to pass me a

:14:52.:14:55.

note immediately saying there was an incident. Then I could tell because

:14:56.:15:03.

members in the Chambers caught my eye at which point the chief

:15:04.:15:07.

executive was sitting next to me and he left to assess the situation and

:15:08.:15:13.

came back with an update. But as these events unfold it can be quite

:15:14.:15:18.

chaotic in terms of news and hard information. What happened was there

:15:19.:15:23.

was a very strong feeling, and I have a strong belief in not giving

:15:24.:15:27.

into terror, so there was a strong feeling at that stage that we should

:15:28.:15:32.

continue to maintain Parliamentary business, particularly with a lack

:15:33.:15:36.

of information. At that stage we were in the middle of a

:15:37.:15:40.

full-blooded, passionate debate on an issue of intense interest to the

:15:41.:15:46.

people of Scotland, so there was no prospect of suspending business.

:15:47.:15:51.

However, as more information became available, it became clear that

:15:52.:15:52.

members were elsewhere. It was beginning to affect the

:15:53.:16:04.

debate itself? Our members have friends and colleagues in relation

:16:05.:16:10.

that work at Westminster. We were debating something about the

:16:11.:16:13.

relationship with our sister Parliament at Westminster. It became

:16:14.:16:18.

clear it would be inappropriate to continue the debate. It was a

:16:19.:16:22.

reluctant decision, but we had to suspend business. We have just been

:16:23.:16:28.

Billy Maka seen the report on the levels of security here, are you

:16:29.:16:32.

satisfied with the security? We have a duty to be publicly accessible and

:16:33.:16:38.

engage with the people of Scotland. We have two protect the public and

:16:39.:16:41.

the Parliament and the people who attend this Parliament. We have

:16:42.:16:46.

upgraded our security and number of times. Right beside you, we have the

:16:47.:16:52.

steel bollards that external I security to protect the Parliament

:16:53.:16:58.

and those who work there. I think we realise that one thing that stopped

:16:59.:17:03.

events within Westminster getting worse, was the quick response of

:17:04.:17:07.

armed police officers. We don't have armed police officers here on a

:17:08.:17:12.

routine basis? I am not going to speculate about the levels of

:17:13.:17:16.

security. We take our security and the security of the public and the

:17:17.:17:19.

staff here very seriously. I wouldn't want to speculate. Is it

:17:20.:17:26.

perhaps time to think about that? Armed police are available in

:17:27.:17:30.

Scotland when they are needed. It is not a case that I think people in

:17:31.:17:34.

public should discuss where and when they are deployed. But I can see

:17:35.:17:40.

you, security here for the sake of everybody who uses this building,

:17:41.:17:45.

who believes in a practising and engaged democracy, we take security

:17:46.:17:50.

very seriously and we will be reviewing matters.

:17:51.:17:52.

We can go to our reporter Andrew Black, who's

:17:53.:17:54.

Andrew, any response from Police Scotland

:17:55.:17:57.

And perhaps the ramifications? Behind me you can see Govan police

:17:58.:18:13.

station and this is part of Police Scotland's anti-terrorism

:18:14.:18:19.

operations. We have had an updated statement. Police Scotland said

:18:20.:18:23.

following the incident in London, Police Scotland is reviewing its

:18:24.:18:26.

security plans and operations. Part of that review they say in clue 's

:18:27.:18:32.

issues like the deployment of armed police officers and other specialist

:18:33.:18:37.

officers. They have urged the public to remain vigilant and report any

:18:38.:18:41.

suspicious activity to the police. They continue to liaise with UK

:18:42.:18:50.

authorities. Police Scotland and UK anti-terrorist maintain close links

:18:51.:18:57.

with the matter. We saw that ten years ago during the terrorist

:18:58.:19:00.

attack on Glasgow Airport. Michael Matheson has been briefed by the

:19:01.:19:05.

Chief Constable and both Scottish Government officials and Police

:19:06.:19:09.

Scotland officials have met this afternoon as part of their

:19:10.:19:13.

resilience team and will continue to meet tonight again as the situation

:19:14.:19:15.

continues to unfold. The Daily Record's Westminster

:19:16.:19:21.

editor Torquil Crichton Torquil, tell me where you are,

:19:22.:19:24.

what is the current position? You are under lockdown? Democracy is

:19:25.:19:39.

under lockdown the night. We have been here since 2:40pm when we heard

:19:40.:19:48.

gunshots just below the offices of the journalists at Westminster. We

:19:49.:19:50.

gunshots just below the offices of look down, we swept away the

:19:51.:19:56.

bombproof curtains that save us from Bob and fragments, should they come

:19:57.:19:59.

in. We looked down and there where two down on the cobbled yard. I

:20:00.:20:05.

rushed down with others to see what was happened to be met by armed

:20:06.:20:09.

police rushing out of their armoury in the underground car park, taking

:20:10.:20:18.

up point like you would see on armed patrol. They locked MPs back in the

:20:19.:20:23.

chamber and swept the Prime Minister out of here as quickly as they

:20:24.:20:28.

could. She is back in Downing Street and chairing a meeting of 1-0. There

:20:29.:20:41.

is a show of defiance that terrorism will not stop democracy. What have

:20:42.:20:49.

you been told about what is happening now and why you are still

:20:50.:20:55.

under lockdown? Hundreds of people come in and out of Westminster every

:20:56.:20:59.

day. This is the busiest day of the week with PMQs. Some of my

:21:00.:21:11.

colleagues, saw the event happen. Others captured it on their phones.

:21:12.:21:16.

There are strict rules about taking photographs within the Palace of

:21:17.:21:20.

There are strict rules about taking Westminster, so we haven't been able

:21:21.:21:23.

to broadcast them. Everybody has to be processed. Who are you, what did

:21:24.:21:28.

you see and what did you hear? Thank you very much. Let's stay with

:21:29.:21:37.

Westminster and let's hear from Nick again. Where exactly are you and

:21:38.:21:42.

what can you tell us about the current situation? I am over the

:21:43.:21:47.

road from Parliament as well. The street outside is normally busy with

:21:48.:21:51.

traffic at this time of night with people heading home, it is deserted.

:21:52.:21:56.

The only people are police and police vehicles. Central London is

:21:57.:22:02.

still in a state of lockdown. In the next while, we expect the Prime

:22:03.:22:07.

Minister chair a meeting of the COBRA resilience committee. They

:22:08.:22:10.

will be discussing the next moves and we have heard from the

:22:11.:22:15.

Metropolitan Police, there will be extra police, both armed and unarmed

:22:16.:22:18.

on the streets over the next few days. We have had a statement from

:22:19.:22:22.

Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary saying, in many cents, this is an

:22:23.:22:31.

ongoing investigation. But we are hearing from MPs, many of them are

:22:32.:22:36.

holed up in Westminster Abbey. They will definitely sit tomorrow, they

:22:37.:22:40.

may even sit tonight if some get their way. The people I have been

:22:41.:22:45.

speaking to, MPs, friends and relatives down here, they feel

:22:46.:22:51.

defiant. London has seen a situation like this before and perhaps it'll

:22:52.:22:53.

incident and it makes you reflect. We go about our business. As I was

:25:43.:25:47.

saying earlier in my report, there is a careful balance to be struck

:25:48.:25:52.

between the accessibility of our politics and politicians and

Amber Rudd saying, urging vigilance but saying the values of democracy,

:26:35.:26:40.

There seems to be an air of defiance and merging, even at this early

stage? There does, it is gloriously complimentary of democracy that

:26:48.:26:50.

there is honourable discourse over the nature of whether the debate

:26:51.:26:54.

should have been suspended. It ultimately was and that was right.

:26:55.:26:57.

Now a reminder of tonight's main news.

:26:58.:26:59.

Four people, including an armed police officer and a man

:27:00.:27:01.

believed to be the attacker, have died in a terrorist incident

:27:02.:27:04.

A woman was among several pedestrians struck by a car

:27:05.:27:08.

on Westminster Bridge before it crashed into railings.

:27:09.:27:10.

The officer was stabbed in the Houses of Parliament by

:27:11.:27:12.

At least 20 people were injured, including three other officers.

:27:13.:27:22.

The Metropolitan Police said a major terrorism investigation was

:27:23.:27:31.

underway. This was happening while there was a debate happening in the

:27:32.:27:35.

Scottish Parliament. It was asking for powers to ask for another

:27:36.:27:39.

independence referendum and it was halted as the news came into the

:27:40.:27:45.

chamber. That is all from Reporting Scotland. From all of us here, good

:27:46.:27:47.

night.
