Dorset Police pay respects to fallen colleague PC Keith Palmer

PC Keith Palmer was stabbed to death by Khalid Masood last month while on duty on the forecourt outside Parliament.

She said: "Lancashire officers are humbled and honoured to be attending the funeral of Keith Palmer".

Scotland Yard's first female chief in its 188-year history, Met commissioner Cressida Dick, was also there in her first public engagement in her new role.

For those unable to attend Palmer's funeral in London, a two-minute silence was held outside police stations across the country. "We all want to pay honour to the ultimate sacrifice that Keith made".

The funeral took place at Southwark Cathedral in central London on Monday.

PC Palmer's coffin will be placed in the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft today to rest for 24 hours before his funeral.

Essex Police officers who could not make it, paid their respects by observing a minutes silence at 2pm.

Pence warns NKorea not to mistake US resolve
President Xi urged Trump to pursue a "peaceful resolution to the tensions" during a phone call the two leaders made on Wednesday. Another missile test from Sinpo failed earlier this month, when the rocket spun out of control and plunged into the ocean.

Normally bustling streets in central London were at a standstill for the procession, led by the hearse with a floral tribute reading "No 1 Daddy". He was shot dead by police after stabbing Palmer.

Thousands of officers will line the route as his coffin is taken from a chapel at the Palace of Westminster.

She said: "Keith didn't hesitate to act when confronted by a terrorist - his bravery and his courage are something that all officers are very proud of, but also there is a tremendous sense of sadness and of loss".

Rows of officers in dress uniform, many displaying service medals, lined up on nearby streets as on-duty colleagues stood guard during the massive security operation.

Four other people were killed in the attack, as Masood drove his vehicle into crowds on Westminster Bridge.

"People offering kindness, support, friendship; wanting to say to their police officers how much they respect what they do".

The other victims were Aysha Frade, 44, who worked at a London sixth-form college, U.S. tourist Kurt Cochran, 54, from Utah, and retired window cleaner Leslie Rhodes, 75, from south London. Yesterday they gathered to pay him tribute.
