Scotland Yard said that the suspect who slammed his car into security barriers outside the British Parliament was charged with the attempted murder of members of the public and the attempted murder of police officers.
Salih Khater, the 29-year-old British citizen of Sudanese origin, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after the car crash.
He allegedly drove his Ford Fiesta into commuters and towards police officers before hitting a security barrier outside Parliament on Tuesday morning.
Police have been granted a warrant to hold Khater in custody until Monday after his arrest on suspicion of preparing an act of terror.
The suspect was unknown to MI5, according to the Metropolitan Police.
The British Parliament is not far from the Westminster Bridge, where a terrorist attack took place in March 2017 when a man ploughed a car into crowds, killing five people.
