Westminster attack, London, 22 March 2017

Thursday, 01 June 2017

By: Jacinta Carroll and Micah Batt

On 22 March 2017, 52-year-old Khalid Masood (born Adrian Elms, with multiple AKAs) drove a hire car onto London’s Westminster Bridge, mounted the vehicle onto the pavement and accelerated into pedestrians.

Masood then drove the vehicle around permanent bollards at the end of the bridge before remounting the pavement and crashing the car. Masood abandoned the vehicle and proceeded on foot into the Houses of Parliament complex.

The attack lasted 82 seconds and resulted in six deaths, including Masood’s, and 49 people injured.
