A man is due to appear in court accused of terror offences after allegedly being found near Buckingham palace armed with a sword.

Mohiussunnath Choudhury, allegedly drove a vehicle at police officers outside the royal residence, before reaching for his 4ft sword on Friday.

Police said three officers were slightly injured as they struggled to arrest a man who deliberately drove up to a police van in a restricted area on Constitution Hill, a road near the palace.

He allegedly shouted "Allahu Akbar" as he reached for the sword before being disabled with CS gas, the court heard.

On Thursday, police announced Mohiussunnath Choudhury, from Luton, had been charged with an offence under the Terrorism Act 2006 of "engaging in conduct in preparation for giving effect to his intention to commit an act or acts of terrorism".

The officers suffered minor arm injuries while arresting the man.

Buckingham Palace is the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, Britain's monarch, and the center of her administration.

Thresa May praised the actions of the police officers following the arrest.

Ben Bland says the man has been charged under the Terrorism Act, has been remanded in custody and will reappear later this month.

British media reported that no royal family members were in the palace at the time of the attack.
