Salih Khater, 29, appeared in court on Monday (August 20) facing two counts of attempted murder over the incident that left two people in hospital.

Mr Khater is alleged to have driven into stationary members of the public before targeting police officers outside the Houses of Parliament on August 14.

Two people required hospital treatment after the attack with one woman being treated for serious but non-life threatening injures.

Another man was treated at the scene.

Mr Khater, a UK national originally from Sudan, was arrested by armed officers after he crashed into barriers outside Parliament.

He was remanded in custody and will appear before the Old Bailey on August 31.

Due to the methodology of the attack, its location and alleged targeting of civilians and officers, the case is being treated as an act of terrorism.
