People mock Fox News claim that terror attack 'shut down city'

Social media users have hit back at a Fox News contributor who claimed the Westminster terror attacker "shut down" London.

Walid Phares said: "One man can shut down a city..." during the Tucker Carlson Tonight show.

Twitter users defied him by posting photos of clear roads and public transport working as normal.

Phares is employed as a terrorism expert by Fox News.

The BBC's political correspondent, Laura Kuenssberg, was reporting from Westminster when the attack happened.
