Sheffield stood together united as one joining up to remember those who died in the London terror attack.

Leaders representing different faiths and bodies stood side by side in the pouring rain to pay tribute to four people who lost their lives at the hands of extremism outside the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday, March 22.

Briton Khalid Masood, aged 52, deliberately drove a car into pedestrians along Westminster Bridge, injuring more than 50 people and killing three. He then fatally stabbed police officer Keith Palmer while trying to enter Parliament before being shot dead by another officer. Terror group Isis claimed responsibility for the attack.

In Sheffield, speakers walked forward to place flowers in the Peace Gardens in memory of those died. Many stood and listened intently to the tributes as people held signs saying 'We Stand As One' along with a banner which read 'Love for all hatred for none'.

Leading the tributes was South Yorkshire Police chief constable Stephen Watson.

He said: "Today is a very sombre moment for all of us together to pay tribute to the four innocent lives that were so tragically and cruelly taken.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who have loved and lost and those many people who suffered serious injury.

"It's always tempting to believe that good can ever emerge from such a tragic set of circumstances but some good has emerged. We have been reminded of the willingness of some to put themselves in harms way in order to defend others such as the case of PC Keith Palmer who died in the brave execution of his duty."

"In response, we have seen bravery, resilience and a determination not to be cowed by those whose who hate and those who would attempt to divide us."

Imam Sheikh Mohammed Ismail, muslim chaplain at the University of Sheffield said the person who carried out the shocking acts did not represent Islam.

"Here, today is the coming of peace of people from different backgrounds, from different cultures and from different faiths. This is sending a message to our common enemy - the terrorists - you will never succeed in dividing us.

"We are one proud nation, we stand with each other."
