Terror victim: 'I didn't have time to jump out the way'

A survivor of the Westminster terror attack has described the moment he was thrown over the front of the attacker's car - leaving him with serious leg injuries.

Francisco Lopes, a 26-year-old Portuguese national living in London for 15 years, says he was only yards away from the oncoming grey Hyundai when he realised he would be hit.

"I was one metre from the car and I could not run from its way so, the car hit me and I fell over the car but part of it was already broken and I think those parts injured me," he said.

"Then, when I was on the floor I saw people shouting, I saw the people distressed and shouting 'Help, help, I don't feel my legs'.

"They were shouting because of the pain they felt. It was awful."

Mr Lopes added that although he was still struggling emotionally it felt "wonderful" to be alive.

A neighbour of the Westminster attacker has said she is "shocked" at the actions of Khalid Masood.

Pc Keith Palmer an 'amazing, encouraging' man

A former colleague and friend of Pc Keith Palmer who was killed in the Westminster attacks has described him as "amazing and encouraging".

David Darby, 38, met Pc Palmer in 1998 when they were in the Territorial Army together.

"Keith was an amazing guy, really encouraging guy, he used to help me out a lot with my fitness and training if I was ever lagging behind, he would encourage me to move on [and] give me motivation," the railway ticket office clerk from south-east London said.

"He was just an amazing guy."

Mr Darby continued: "Keith always talked to me about joining the police force and I found out later on he joined the police force.

"He always wanted to be a firearms officer then jointed the diplomatic police ... just a really nice guy in general, always helped me out."
