The officer's identity has not yet been released.

At least four people, including the terrorist, were killed and 20 injured after an assailant mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before fatally stabbing a police officer outside Parliament in London overnight.

"So I went to the control room, I told the controller there had been what we thought was a terror attack on the Palace of Westminster and I said "you've got to shut this station now, we've got to stop people coming into this situation".

There was an unexpected face among the first responders to Wednesday's attack near the House of Parliament in London.

Yesterday Tobias Ellwood was seen weeping in the Commons as ministers praised the officer's ultimate sacrifice.

Individual stories of bravery are starting to emerge after the terrorist attacks outside the British parliament.

"I thought to myself: the one thing we don't want is a whole load of tourists walking up and wandering in with their children into this situation", she said.

'I tried to stem the flow of blood and give mouth to mouth while waiting for the medics to arrive but I think he had lost too much blood.

"[The officer] had multiple wounds, under the arm and in the back", The Mail quoted him as saying.

Mr Ellwood lost his brother in the second blast of the Bali bombings, which killed 202 people in 2002.

His heroic efforts were unfortunately in vain as PC Palmer, a husband with a five-year-old daughter, died from his injuries.

Wednesday's incident began when a auto was driven over Westminster Bridge, hitting and injuring a number of members of the public and three police officers. The police officer died before they could be flown to hospital.

Ellwood is a former soldier and is now Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Minister for the Middle East and Africa.
