Five people have now died and over 50 people were injured.

Flowers have now been laid by members of the public outside Northamptonshire Police Headquarters at Wootton Hall, in Wootton Hall Park, off the A45, where the Union Flag is flying at half mast.

A card attached one of the bunches reads: "For PC Palmer and all who protect us. Thank you."

Superintendent of Northamptonshire Police Dennis Murray said: "It's really clear that the police have the public's support. PC Keith Palmer put his life at risk in his duty and sadly he paid the ultimate price. What is one of the darkest hours for the service has also been a time of tremendous support from the people across the nation.

"I want to thank Northamptonshire's public for their support with special thanks to the member of the public who left these flowers. We are happy to have them displayed here at Wootton Hall."
