We would like to add our tribute to the four people who lost their lives in the terrorist attack in Westminster yesterday including the bravest of the brave; Keith Palmer, the police officer and father-of-two who lost his life, protecting our freedom and democracy. Bystanders report that he put other’s safety before his own as he ran towards danger to protect them. Keith was an unarmed member of the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command. He served as a soldier before joining the police fifteen years ago and now he has paid the ultimate sacrifice. Our hearts go out to his family at this very, very sad time. We, at the BDLN, will do our very best to honour his memory by demonstrating compassion and bravery in all that we do. He was and is a shining example to us all.
Flowers have been laid on Westminster Bridge in tribute to those killed in a terror attack on the heart of the capital. Metropolitan Police officer Keith Palmer and three members of the public were fatally injured when a 4x4 ploughed into crowds on the bridge before a knifeman turned on the PC. The attacker was shot dead by police. Just hours after the horror unfolded, grieving Londoners laid floral tributes on the south-side of the bridge.
