Flowers were laid in tribute to the four victims who died and those who were injured.

Peace vigils in the aftermath of the Westminster attack have been held in Birmingham and London, with participants urging the country to stand in unity.

Hundreds of people gathered in Birmingham’s city centre after its most prominent mosque issued a statement condemning Wednesday’s attack in London as “barbaric and heartless”.

In London, people stood outside the gates of Downing Street holding signs that promoted unity, urging the nation to “stand united”.
