Lancashire student who was ran over in London terror attack attends service for victims

A student from Lancashire attended a service for the victims of the Westminster terror attack today - exactly two weeks after four people were killed in the capital.

Travis Frain, who studies at Edge Hill University, was ran over on Westminster Bridge by Khalid Masood. Doctors have told him it may be months until he walks properly again.

Masood killed three people when he drove into crowds on March 22 and stabbed a policeman to death before being shot dead at the UK Parliament.

Relatives of those killed in the attack have members of the Royal Family at a "service of hope" at Westminster Abbey.

Emergency services staff were among the 2,000-strong multi-faith.

Theresa May set to be confirmed as new Conservative leader

Altrincham and Sale West MP and chairman of the Conservative backbench 1922 Committee, Graham Brady, said he needed to consult with the party's board before formally confirming that Theresa May was the new leader of the Conservative Party.

Theresa May looks set to be confirmed as leader, and the UK's second female prime minister, after her only remaining rival Andrea Leadsom sensationally dropped out of the race to succeed David Cameron.

Leadsom announced she was quitting the contest shortly after apologising to the Home Secretary over an interview in which she appeared to suggest that the fact she was a mother gave her the edge over the childless Mrs May as a future PM.

Speaking on the steps of her campaign HQ in Westminster, the Energy Minister wished Mrs May "the very greatest success" and promised her "my full support".

He said he was hoping to hold discussions this afternoon, but was unable to say whether Mrs May would be confirmed as Prime Minister by the end of the day or the week.

Meanwhile, Justice Secretary Michael Gove, who came third in the leadership ballot among Tory MPs, pledged his backing to Mrs May, saying:

Andrea Leadsom spoke with great dignity and courage today. I wish her every success in the future.

We should now move as quickly as possible to ensure Theresa May can take over as leader. She has my full support as our next Prime Minister.

– Justice Secretary Michael Gove
