MPs stood side by side in silence yesterday to remember those injured and killed in the Westminster attack.
With the benches full and heads bowed, they observed a minute of silence in the usually noisy debating chamber.
It was held at 9.33am in honour of PC Keith Palmer, 48, a father and husband killed in the attack, who had the shoulder number 933.
Speaker John Bercow said: “Colleagues, in respectful memory of those who lost their lives in yesterday’s attack and of all of the casualties, we shall now observe a minute’s silence.”
Some MPs clutched tissues while others stared at their phones during the silent tribute.
The public gallery remained open and a dozen people watched the early exchanges of yesterday’s business.
Several bunches of flowers have been laid in Westminster Hall alongside what appeared to be a book of condolence.
A packed House of Lords also held a minute’s silence.
