The attacker who was said to be ‘known’ to the Metropolitan Police and the Police, blew his Gray color Hyundai i40 into the Westminster Bridge outside the British Parliament. The Policeman identified as Keith Palmer whose was serving his 15th year of service in British Police. The attack is said to be the deadliest attack since 7/7 attack.

Dept Comm Rowley said: “One of those who died today was a police officer – PC Keith Palmer – a member of our Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command. Keith aged 48, had 15 years’ service and was a husband and a father. He was someone who left for work today expecting to return home at the end of his shift, and he had every right to expect that would happen. I can also now confirm three members of the public also lost their lives in this attack. Specially trained family liaison officers will be deployed to support them. And I confirmed earlier, and the suspected attacker was shot dead by armed police, therefore meaning we now have five people in total who have died.”

Eyewitness Rick Longley said: “We were just walking up to the station and someone crashed a car and took some pedestrians out. They were just laying there, and then the whole crowd just surged around the corner by the gates just opposite Big Ben. A guy came past my right shoulder with a big knife and just started plunging it into the policeman. I have never seen anything like that. I just can’t believe what I just saw.”
