A man has been arrested after dousing himself in petrol outside Parliament’s Carriage Gate entrance.
Man next to me at Parliament’s carriage gates appears to have poured (what smells like) petrol on himself. Incredibly brave response from police, who are now helping him.

A BBC employee in the area at the time said
Horrible to witness this. Police told us to run and nobody knew what was actually happening. Just a lot of shouting and running. Thank God nothing happened.
Talk about gaslighting in politics…
