A DARWEN student seriously injured in the Westminster Bridge terrorist attack was this week reliving the 'terrible drama' of March last year.

Travis Frain, 20, is attending the London inquest into the atrocity in which four pedestrians and policeman died.

The former head boy of Darwen Aldridge Community Academy, who suffered multiple injuries requiring surgery and an eight-day stay in a London hospital, is expected to give evidence to the week long inquiry.

He was on a study trip to the Houses of Parliament on March 22 2017 when he was hit by a car driven deliberately at pedestrians by Khalid Masood on the crossing over the River Thames.

On Monday Coroner Mark Lucraft QC told the inquest the tragedy was ‘82 seconds of high and terrible drama’.

During it Kurt Cochran, Leslie Rhodes, Aysha Frade, and Andreea Cristea died and Police Constable Keith Palmer was stabbed and killed in front of the Palace of Westminster.

Masood was shot dead at the scene by police officers.

Mr Farin was thrown over the bonnet of Masood's car suffering fractures to his leg and left arm, as a cracked rib, two broken fingers and a deep cut to his thigh.

As Mr Frain attended the inquest yesterday, it was revealed he was helping organise a free conference bringing together survivors of terrorism from across the world.

The third year History with Politics student at Edge Hill University found support from the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation, a charity for victims of terrorism set up by the families of the two children killed in the IRA bombing in Warrington 25 years ago.

Now a volunteer Trustee, Mr Frain is hoping the Survivors for Peace conference in the Cheshire town on September 21 will give people the opportunity to share their experiences and launch a global campaign of survivors for freedom, justice and harmony.

Mr Frain said: “The conference is primarily aimed at people affected by terrorism, but we believe professionals supporting survivors of violent conflict and the public will find it valuable.

"After the attack, I found that the Peace Foundation was the only thing in place to support myself and my family. I became a Trustee as a way of giving something back and I’m delighted to have the chance to raise awareness of the charity through events like Survivors for Peace.”

The conference on United Nations International Peace Day jointly hosted by One World Strong, an organisation set up by survivors of the Boston Marathon Bombing, will feature Deputy US Ambassador to the UK, Lew Lukens, and Dr Idit Albert, Head of Psychological Trauma for Terrorist Incidents at NHS London.

It takes place from 10.00-16.00 at the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Centre in Warrington. Entry is free.
