Armed officers ‘nowhere to be seen’ as PC killed in Westminster

A terrorist brandishing two foot-long knives stabbed a police officer in an “animated and frenzied” attack inside the Palace of Westminster, yet armed officers were “nowhere to be seen”, an inquest has heard.

Witnesses described horrific scenes as PC Keith Palmer was attacked by Khalid Masood, before he was brought down by a plainclothes officer who shot him three times.
