White House locked down as aircraft enters restricted space... fire fighters on ground too

The White House and US Capitol building were both put on lock down after an aircraft entered a restricted space.

Fighter jets were scrambled and sent into the air to intercept the plane.

Staff working in both buildings have been told to ‘shelter in place,’ and the North Lawn of the White House was cleared.

President Trump is believed to be in Washington DC, although updates on his whereabouts have not been given.

Fox News reported that the alert was triggered by an aircraft moving east across the city, which violated protected air space.

The aircraft is not believed to have been hostile, although further details have not yet been shared.

The White House’s briefing room is currently locked, according to reporters at the scene.
