Five people have died, with 50 more injured - some critically - after Wednesday’s terror attack near the Houses of Parliament.

Kent-born muslim convert Khalid Masood, 52 - formerly Adrian Elms - drove at pedestrians in his car on Westminster Bridge. He then crashed his hired Hyundai SUV into the railings in front of Parliament Yard before bursting through the gate to the Palace of Westminster with two large knives where he fatally stabbed unarmed Pc Keith Palmer, 48.

He was shot dead moments later by a close protection officer attached to Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon.
