MPs and peers told to flee for their lives if terrorists attack Parliament
Daily Telegraph Reporter
"An emergency plan drawn up by police and circulated to all Westminster workers informs staff that in the event of an armed attack they should head for the nearest exist, only stopping to help injured colleagues if it is safe for them to do so.
"The warning, contained in an email circulated to MPs, peers, researchers, secretaries other employees, discloses that the authorities anticipate that a Mumbai style assault on the Houses of Parliament could potentially result in heavy casualties.
"It advises workers not to attempt to barricade themselves into their offices unless they have no choice, adding that many lives could have been saved in Mumbai if victims had been able to flee."
