These are the front pages of the UK newspapers after yesterday's attack

Nearly all of the newspapers in the UK have used a photo of the attacker lying on an ambulance stretcher.

BRITAIN IS WAKING to a day of grief after four people died in a terror attack at Westminster yesterday.

The dead include the attacker who ran down several pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before stabbing a policeman to death at parliament gates.

Officers shot the attacker dead but not before he killed the policeman and two members of the public.

Nearly all of the newspapers in the UK have used a photo of the attacker lying on an ambulance stretcher on their front pages this morning.

Seven people are still described as being in a critical condition in hospital. 29 people in total remain in hospital.

Prime Minister Theresa May described the attack as “sick and depraved” and affirmed parliament would meet as normal today.

Standing outside her Downing Street residence after an emergency cabinet meeting, May said Britain’s alert level would remain unchanged at level four, or “severe”.

We will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.

These are some of the front pages of Britain’s papers this morning:


The worst previous attack in London was in 2005 when four British suicide bombers inspired by Al-Qaeda targeted the transport system, killing 52 people.

Britain’s last terror attack was last year’s assassination of MP Jo Cox by a pro-Nazi sympathiser in her constituency in northern England.
