Monday 22 March marks the fourth anniversary of the Westminster Bridge terrorist attack that sadly killed five people and injured more than fifty.
The victims, the bereaved and survivors will forever be in our thoughts and to commemorate the anniversary of the attack, the council has arranged for floral tributes to be placed at Westminster Bridge as well as supporting a dedicated online event on Sunday 21 March. The council will be installing a commemorative plaque on Westminster Bridge when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
Anyone who has been affected by the attacks in any way can view a recording of an online event that took place over the weekend.

Cllr Rachael Robathan, the Leader of Westminster City Council, said:
“Our thoughts are with the survivors as well as the family and friends who suffered loss following the terrorist attack at Westminster Bridge and New Palace Yard four years ago. Our communities can’t come together at the moment but in time, as Covid restrictions ease, we will meet to mark this tragic day.
“The aftermath of the terrorist attacks demonstrated that those who live and work in Westminster will not be cowed by terrorism, from whatever quarter it comes. We take the proper security measures with police, but as home to Parliament, Westminster is committed to being an open City and we refuse to have that tradition undermined by violence.”
