Well-wishers donate £500,000 to PC Keith Palmer's family



A fundraising campaign for the family of murdered police officer Keith Palmer has surpassed £500,000 in just over 24 hours.
 
The 48-year-old officer died after confronting Khalid Masood - whose birth name was Adrian Russell Ajao - inside the gates of the Palace of Westminster during Wednesday's attack.


Theresa May called PC Palmer "every inch a hero".


The Metropolitan Police Federation launched an official memorial page for PC Palmer at 9.13am on Thursday after receiving a large number of requests from its members who wanted to help.


Stephen Redgewell, who set up the page, said: "A quick thank-you for all those of you that have made your generous gifts in memory of Keith.


"It is heartwarming to see the messages that have been posted and those that have chosen not to post a message, the gift alone speaks a thousand words."
