Mr Johnson’s car was hit in the back as his vehicle made a sudden stop after a protester “ran out into the road”. A security vehicle is thought to have hit the back of his car outside Parliament. The protester has reportedly been arrested after the incident.

The Prime Minister is thought to have been leaving the Houses of Parliament following Prime Minister’s questions as his motorcade moved towards Parliament Square.

Mr Johnson’s car was forced to brake sharply which caused one of his security to collide into the rear of the vehicle.

As seen by the video, a person is seen to move towards the motorcade causing the lead car to break before a backup vehicle collides into its rear.

Downing Street has confirmed the Prime Minister was in the car at the time of the incident.

It is though a person associated with a Kurdish protest in Parliament Square ran towards the car.

In a statement, the police said: “The police vehicles were part of a security movement.

“A pedestrian is reported to have stepped onto the road, causing the vehicles to suddenly stop, which has led to two of the vehicles in the convoy being involved in a damage-only collision.

“No injuries have been reported. A man, no further details at this time, was arrested at the scene for offences under Section 5 of the Public Order Act and for obstructing the highway.”

During PMQs today, Sir Keir Starmer and the Prime Minister clashed over Brexit and the current coronavirus pandemic.

Following the Government’s u-turn over free school meals, Sir Keir praised the Prime Minister while also stressing it was only one step.

The Labour leader stated an estimated 600,000 more children are living in poverty than in 2012.

While stating he was proud that his Government had made a U-turn on the food voucher system, Mr Johnson also asked the leader of the Opposition to support their efforts.

Mr Johnson was also asked on whether he will increase Universal Credit by £20 a week.

In response to Ian Blackford, the Prime Minister said the Government was ready to stand by the public.

He said: “We are fully aware there will be tough times ahead and we do stand by to do more where we can.”
