Does anyone know why there are helicopters hovering around Westminster Bridge Road today? There was one at around 10am, joined by another a couple of hours ago and now we have three of them buzzing overhead and the noise is really distracting. What's going on that warrants three helicopters?

Probably something to do with "terror suspects" being charged today at Westminster Court just over the bridge on Parliament Square.

i've just been trying to find out something similar - why there are two helicopters travelling slowly, backwards, along the Old Kent Road?

The route to Belmarsh?

could be - there were lots of police car noises too, at about the same time.
