Hundreds have turned out to a peace vigil in Luton after it emerged that the Westminster attacker had lived in the town.
Faith leaders, police officers and members of the public all turned out to pay tribute to those who lost their life and promote community cohesion.
Former neighbours of 52-year-old Khalid Masood said they were disgusted to find out he was behind the terror attacks that left carnage on the streets of London.
A 35-year-old policeman seriously injured in Wednesday’s terrorist attack was from Braintree.
Kris Aves suffered what has been described as life-changing injuries including two broken legs and a broken arm when he was hit by the attacker’s car on Westminster bridge.
It is thought he was among a party of policemen on the bridge who were returning from an awards ceremony.
He now lives in Barnet. Mr Aves' parents, who still live in Braintree, are at his bedside.
The man who carried out the Westminster terror attack had previously lived in Luton.
52-year old Khalid Masood had lived in the town up until 2012, when he moved to the West Midlands.
It's now been revealed that his birth name was Adrian Russell Ajao.
"We remain keen to hear from anyone who knew Khalid Masood well, understands who his associates were and can provide us with information about places he has recently visited. There might be people out there who did have concerns about Masood but did not feel comfortable for whatever reason in passing those concerns to us."
