The fourth victim of the Westminster terror attack has been named as Leslie Rhodes. The 75-year-old, from Streatham, in south London, died in hospital on Thursday night (23 March).
Streatham MP Chuka Umunna tweeted: "Deeply saddened to hear that my constituent Leslie Rhodes has died from the injuries he sustained in Wednesday's shocking and awful attack.
"The thoughts and prayers of all our community are with Mr Rhodes' family and friends – we can only imagine what they are going through."
Police say two other victims are still in a critical condition, one with life threatening injuries.
Five people have so far been killed as a result of the incident. They are:

Assistant Deputy Commissioner Mark Rowley said in a statement this morning that two more "significant arrests" had been made in north-west England and the West Midlands.
Rowley also said that the total count of injured people was now thought to be at 50, of which 31 had received hospital treatment.
Last night a candlelit vigil was held for the victims in Trafalgar Square. It was attended by thousands including Mayor Sadiq Khan and Home Secretary Amber Rudd.
