Respect to those who lost their lives, were injured, and who gave assistance

As the information about the terrorist incident in Westminster became clearer, it was obviously serious with 5 deaths and 40 injured.

My intended posts seem a little banal in comparison to the death of the unarmed policeman, the display of courage by the police and the MP Tobias Elwood.

Think Prime Minister’s words about the incident appropriate to repeat here,

“Once again today, these exceptional men and women ran towards the danger, even as they encouraged others to move the other way.”

“These streets of Westminster, home to the world’s oldest parliament, are ingrained with a spirit of freedom that echoes in some of the furthest corners of the globe.”

I recommend Harry Cole’s witness report in The Sun for it’s brutal reality of horror and heroism.

Phew, terrorist incident on Westminster Bridge, just where I was with friends yesterday

Terrorist incident on Westminster Bridge this afternoon, just where I was with friends yesterday. The area around the London Eye, Embankment, Westminster Bridge and Parliament Square was immensely busy yesterday, and I imagine the same today. Do hope none to seriously injured – that’s apart from the madmen causing the mayhem. [My photo of the bridge from yesterday]
