Pedestrians tried to escape the "chaos" of the 2017 Westminster terror attack



Pedestrians tried to escape the "chaos" of the 2017 Westminster terror attack but never stood a chance, a witness has told the inquest into their deaths.

 
Kylie Smith, a teacher accompanying a group of children, described seeing Khalid Masood's car hit people.


"It was very clearly a deliberate act. The way he turned the car to change the direction," she told the Old Bailey.


Four people were killed on Westminster Bridge before PC Keith Palmer was stabbed to death outside Parliament.


"It was chaos. It was just chaos," Ms Smith told the hearing. "People trying to get out of the way but nobody really had a chance."
