He was unarmed when the attacker - who was wielding two large knives - came charging towards him after mowing down pedestrians in his car on Westminster Bridge.

Five people have been confirmed dead in the incident, including the police officer and the suspected attacker, after a 4x4 vehicle mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before a knife attack in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.

Photos showed how Foreign Office Minister Tobias Ellwood MP battled to save the life of the policeman.
