Westminster Attack: Khalid Masood Was Lawfully Killed After Murderous Rampage, Inquest Finds

By Chris York

Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood was lawfully killed after his murderous rampage which left four pedestrians and a police constable dead, an inquest jury at the Old Bailey has found after deliberating for two hours and 22 minutes.

Masood, 52, drove a hire car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing Leslie Rhodes, 75, Kurt Cochran, 54, Aysha Frade, 44, and Andreea Cristea, 31, and seriously injuring 29 others.

The inquest heard how crowds fled in terror after Masood crashed his Hyundai Tucson into railings and headed towards the Palace of Westminster gates armed with two large knives.

PC Keith Palmer was on duty at the Carriage Gates and stepped forward to confront him.

The officer was driven back and stumbled by a low wall where he was repeatedly stabbed by Masood.

The inquest started after the end of inquests into his victims, which were heard without a jury.
