Police have made an arrest after a man was photographed apparently urinating next to a memorial for PC Keith Palmer, who was stabbed to death during a terror attack in Westminster.

The incident is believed to have taken place on Saturday afternoon during protests in Parliament Square in central London.

PC Palmer was killed in 2017 by Khalid Masood, a terrorist who stormed the gates near parliament after killing four pedestrians with his car on Westminster Bridge.

Police said on Sunday that a 28-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency.

The man is currently in custody in Essex after presenting himself at a police station, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
