The @MPFed have launched a Memorial Fund in memory of PC Keith Palmer #charity

Five dead, including a police officer and attacker, plus 40 injured after assault on Houses of Parliament Wednesday 22nd March 2017.

The police officer named as PC Keith Palmer, 48, a member of the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command, with 15 years’ service in the force. He was unarmed.

Metropolitan police acting deputy commissioner Mark Rowley said Palmer was a husband and 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.

The other victims of the attack, and the assailant, have not yet been named.  Police said 40 other people were injured, many remain in hospital, some in a serious condition.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, echoed her comments, saying:

London is the greatest city in the world and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life.

UK foreign minister Boris Johnson, who is in the US for an international meeting discussing the Isis threat, said:

Heartbreaking. This is not the first attack on London or our Parliament – and won’t be the last – but our values will prevail.

The terror threat level for the UK remains unchanged, at “severe”. The Metropolitan police said extra patrols, armed and unarmed, would be in place, “particularly in crowded places and iconic locations”.

The Queen has postponed a planned visit to Scotland Yard that was due to take place today.

The Metropolitan Police Federation (MPF) is a professional organisation representing more than 30,000 police officers in the London area. A crowdfunding page has been set up, raising money for the family of PC Keith Palmer, the Police Officer who tragically gave his life on 22 March as he guarded the Palace of Westminster from what is believed to have been a terrorist attack.
