Face of terror: Photo clearly shows the London attacker

Startling images show the face of the dying knife-man (see picture below) being stretchered into an ambulance after stabbing a policeman to death and killing at least three pedestrians in a shock attack in Westminster today.

Being strapped onto the stretcher by compassionate ambulance staff, the Asian man in his 40s receives treatment after driving a 4×4 across Westminster Bridge, injuring 40 people. Two objects that appear to be knives can be seen on the concrete next to the attacker, who then drove into the gates of the Palace of Westminster and stabbed a police officer to death.

The suspect’s face can be clearly seen as he lies on his back on the stretcher, with his shoes on the floor and his shirt open, revealing what appear to bandages on his stomach. The man drove a year-old Hyundai Tucson – worth up to £32,000 and registered in the affluent Essex city of Chelmsford – down Westminster Bridge at ‘high speed’ before attacking the officer.

The car – which is thought to have been a rental vehicle – can accelerate from 0 to 60mph in as little as 9.5 seconds and was registered between September 2016 and February 2017. The man is believed to have been the only attacker although police locked down the area on a ‘precautionary basis’ tonight in case someone else was still at large.

Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner Mark Rowley told reporters outside New Scotland Yard tonight: ‘We’re satisfied at this stage that it looks like there was only one attacker, but it would be foolish to be overconfident so early on.

‘So, for precautionary basis, we’re locking down the area and doing all the necessary searches so we can be completely confident that everyone is safe.’

At least three civilians were killed on the bridge, as well as the police officer who was stabbed and his attacker.

Eyewitnesses described scenes of terror when gunfire rang out as the attacker approached a second officer within yards of the Houses of Parliament. Paramedics fought to save his life and that of his victim on the floor of the courtyard in front of Parliament. Two large knives could be seen at the scene.

Witnesses described seeing a heavy-set man carrying a knife. Jayne Wilkinson said: ‘We were taking photos of Big Ben and we saw all the people running towards us. (DAILY MAIL)
