Thousands of police officers from across Britain have lined the streets of London for a funeral procession for the policeman killed in an extremist attack on 22 March. Constable Keith Palmer was stabbed to death by Khalid Masood as he guarded the forecourt of the Palace of Westminster. The cortege made its way from the Houses of Parliament to Southwark Cathedral where the funeral will take place.

Police said the scale of the funeral will be unprecedented, with two minutes of silence to be observed by police throughout the country. Palmer's coffin lay overnight in a chapel at Parliament after special permission was granted by the Queen. Masood killed four other victims as he rammed pedestrians on Westminster Bridge with a rented SUV.
