London Home Office On Lockdown After Stabbing
Emergency services were called to Marsham Street at around 1pm on Thursday amid reports of a man with a knife.
Heavily bloodied and wearing a suit, the male victim was seen being led away by paramedics and armed police. His injuries are being described as non-life threatening by the Met Police. 
A man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and taken to a nearby police station.
A police spokeswoman said it was too early to say whether the incident was linked to the Home Office, but there was no suggestion it was terrorism-related.We can confirm our crews responded to the Marsham Street, Westminster incident alongside @metpoliceuk. We treated a man at the scene and took him to a major trauma centre. https://t.co/XtWpxPCQL9— London Ambulance Service (@Ldn_Ambulance) August 15, 2019Eyewitness Gareth Milner said he was eating his lunch on the wall outside the Home Office when “a number of armed police officers arrived on scene and entered the building”.
“Some time later a gentleman with quite a bloodied face and with dressing pressed into his face was escorted out of the Home Office by paramedics,” said Milner, who works nearby for the Centre for Policy Studies think-tank.
“He was quiet and walking on his own feet, not being physically supported,” he added.
Milner said a police officer told him someone had been stabbed in the incident, but gave no further details.
A police cordon remains in place around the buildings. 
In a statement, the Met said: “Inquiries are ongoing into the exact circumstances of the incident.”
