AN MP has asked for a lasting memorial to PC Keith Palmer who died in last week’s terror attack in Westminster.

Nigel Evans, who represents the Ribble Valley, paid tribute to PC Palmer.

Speaking in the House of Commons he said: “I’m very proud of the police and everything that they do in defending our democracy. Keith Palmer was one of us.

"The police, who protect us, are one of us.

“The tribute to Keith and the police are that we are here today and our proceedings are going on.

“I do hope that, at an appropriate time, with discussion with the family, that we may be able to look at a lasting memorial to Keith, in order that each and every one of us know that there are people putting their lives on the line for our democracy today.”

Darwen student Travis Frain was one of those seriously injured in the attack by Khalid Masood who was shot dead after stabbing PC Palmer and killing four pedestrians.
