A second man has been arrested in connection with the attempted terror attack near Buckingham Palace that left three officers injured. The 30-year-old was detained in West London on Sunday (August 27) on suspicion of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism. The Metropolitan Police Service confirmed the arrest was linked to an incident on Friday (August 25) in which a man attacked unarmed officers with a blade on the Mall. The perpetrator, aged 26, had parked in a restricted area outside the Palace when officers spotted a large knife in his vehicle. The officers sustained minor arm injuries while confronting him but have since been discharged from hospital. The man was arrested on suspicion of terror-related offences as well as grievous bodily harm and assault on police. The force has been granted a warrant for his further detention, which will expire on September 1.
