The Prime Minister has been involved in a car crash outside Parliament, APA reports citing Telegraph.

Boris Johnson was in a car leaving via the gates of the Palace of Westminster and onto Parliament Square in Westminster when a protester ran out into the road to attack the Prime Minister's convoy. 

The driver of the car was seen to hit the brakes suddenly to avoid the demonstrator, causing the security detail in a Range Rover following behind to crash into the back of the first vehicle. 

Both cars left the scene quickly with a visible dent in the back of the Prime Minister's Jaguar. 

Downing Street has said there are no reports of any injuries, and a spokesman said a protester was detained after running in front of the silver Jaguar.

A Number 10 spokesman confirmed the car was Mr Johnson's, adding: "I think the video speaks for itself as to what happened. No reports of anybody being injured."

The spokesman said Mr Johnson was travelling in the car at the time.
