Prince Charles visits the casualties of Wednesday’s terror attack in hospital

The Prince of Wales has visited some of the victims who were injured in Wednesday’s terror attack in hospital.

The heir to the throne travelled to King’s College Hospital in London on Friday where he met those who were injured, as well as the medics who treated them.

King’s College Hospital is one of several hospitals in London to treat those injured in the Westminster attack.

More than 50 people were injured during the incident, with over 30 being admitted to hospital.

Eight of those victims are being treated at King’s College Hospital, where Prince Charles has visited – one later died after succumbing to his injuries.

75-year-old Leslie Rhodes from South London was named on Friday morning as the fourth fatality. He was struck by the terrorist’s car when it ran over pedestrians on Westminster Bridge.

After ramming into pedestrians, the 52-year-old terrorist stabbed a police officer, 48-year-old PC Keith Palmer, who later died.

Aysha Frade, a college tutor, and Kurt Cochran, an American tourist who was celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary also lost their lives.

Prime Minister Theresa May chaired an emergency COBRA meeting, where afterwards she condemned the “sick and depraved terrorist attack.”

Speaking outside of Number 10, Mrs May said: “Let me make it clear today… any attempt to defeat those values through violence is doomed to failure.

“Parliament will come together as normal and Londoners will get up and go about their day as normal… they will walk these streets, they will live their lives never giving into terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.”
