The South Yorkshire Police Band has paid a musical tribute to fallen colleague PC Keith Palmer, who was killed during Wednesday's Westminster terror attack.

Band members recorded the song in honour of all those affected by the atrocity, but particularly for PC Palmer whose life was taken in the line of duty.

They posted the recording on YouTube today, accompanied by the message: "Played at rehearsal, 23rd March 2017, as a tribute to all those affected by the Westminster attack, and in particular our fallen colleague PC Keith Palmer - 'Heav’n’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee; In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me'."

PC Palmer was stabbed to death by Khalid Masood outside the Houses of Parliament, before the 52-year-old attacker was shot dead by police.

The police officer was one of four people killed and 50 injured by Masood, who had moments earlier ploughed into pedestrians thronging Westminster Bridge in a car.

Police have so far arrested 11 people in connection with the investigation, six of whom have been released with no further action.
