a bridge to far

Not just Westminster but all the bridges close to Parliment were sealed. This is Lambeth Bridge, one bridge upstream from Westminster, you can see Big Ben and Parliament in the background.

Notice how the police are in their regular uniforms and not riot gear. They have no guns, no body amour, no bullet proof vests, and no long batons. Of course there are riot police nearby and out of sight, but the prefered police strategy is to hold this line with friendly good will and non-provocation.
