A Westminster insider said the man was behaving “strangely.”

The man – wearing a quilted green jacket and clutching a camera bag – was hauled off to a South London police station for further questioning.

A spokesman for House of Commons authorities said: “We are aware of an incident involving a visitor in a public area of the Parliamentary estate.”

Security staff and the police attended and the situation has been resolved.’

Westminster Police said: “At 1323hrs, officers arrested a 29-year-old man at the Palace of Westminster for trespassing at a protected site.

“He has been taken to a south London police station. Enquiries ongoing.”

The arrest came on a day of high-drama in the House of Commons, as MPs voted for a Brexit wrecking amendment by 322 to 306 – torpedoing Boris’ plans to pass a deal.

Super Saturday turned into Pointless Saturday after the Tory rebel sabotaged Boris’ Brexit bid with Parliamentary antics.

Instead the PM must now ask the EU for a THIRD time to delay Britain’s departure from the EU.
