Police Constable Palmer was 48, married and a father. But on Wednesday he was serving as a member of the Met's parliamentary and diplomatic protection command.

He'd been a police officer for 15 years and before that was a member of the Royal Artillery. He wasn't armed when Khalid Masood charged at him with knife.

The first named civilian victim was Aysha Frade, a mother-of-two who was on Westminster Bridge when the attack began.

She worked at DLD College London and as caller James told LBC, she was a lovely woman who made friends wherever she went.

"It's very difficult," he told James O'Brien. "She was just a great person.

"All she ever did was say nice things about our kids. To my wife: your kids are so beautiful, they're really lovely kids. It's just a terrible thing that's happened."
