The PM told MPs: “Yesterday an act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy but today we meet as normal,”

“We are not afraid and our resolve will never waiver in the face of terrorism. We meet here in the oldest of all parliaments because we know democracy and the values it entails will also prevail.”

“A terrorist came to the place where people of nationalities and cultures celebrate what it means to be free. This was an attack on free people everywhere,”

She added that the attack “sickened us all”.

She also paid tribute to PC Keith Palmer, who died yesterday. She said he “was every inch a hero and his actions will never be forgotten”.
