Tributes pour in for murdered Pc Keith Palmer

"Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins added: "#RIP PC Keith Palmer, brutally murdered today carrying out his duty helping to protect Parliament and the freedom of our Country".

Khalid Masood killed the unarmed officer who was guarding Parliament, minutes after Masood drove a auto into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge.

A media statement from Mr. Palmer's family said he will be "deeply missed".

Yards away, separate footage showed Theresa May being rushed from the building and into a waiting vehicle.

He revealed that "lots" of MPs locked in the Commons chamber during the attack were discussing how to boost security in certain areas, but said far more checks are carried out at Carriage Gates than when he was elected in 1992 and a "bobby" would just "wave you through".

The former soldier said he was just doing what he was trained to do as he praised the "humbling" and "overwhelming" messages of support from the policing fraternity. I liked his amusing hat so I asked him if we could take a picture ... "We care about him being remembered for his selfless bravery and loving nature".

Hetty, from Kent, wrote a letter to the police, thanking them for taking care of "the people that have been hurt in London and keeping the Prime Minister safe".

Police believe Masood acted alone on the day of the attack, and warned that while they continue to investigate why he committed the atrocity "that understanding may have died with him".

"We must all accept that there is a possibility we will never understand why he did this".

The 48-year-old officer died after he confronted a terrorist who rammed his vehicle into pedestrians outside Parliament in Westminster at about 2.45pm on Wednesday, March 22.

The Saudi Arabian embassy in London said Masood worked in the country, home to some of the most virulent Islamic extremism, for several years, raising the possibility he was radicalised overseas. Mr Cochran was killed and Mrs Cochran was badly injured. Andreea Cristea, a 29-year-old Romanian architect, was pulled from the river by a passenger boat after falling into the Thames during the attack.

Another two of the fatalities are believed to be pedestrians who were hit by the attacker as he drove erratically on the nearby Westminster Bridge.

The Football Association are planning a tribute to the emergency services involved ahead of England's World Cup qualifier against Lithuania at Wembley on Sunday.
