Emergency services have been called to the Palace of Westminster after a man was seen on the roof.

A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said officers were on the scene to deal with the incident.

She added: “At 9.15pm (on Saturday) officers were made aware of a man trespassing on the roof at the Palace of Westminster. London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service are in attendance.”

There was no immediate information as to why the man was there.

The roof has been the scene of stunts by campaign groups in the past, including by protesters demonstrating against plans for a third runway at Heathrow Airport in 2008, and Greenpeace a year later.
