Ribble Valley MP, Nigel Evans, has called for a "lasting memorial" to those who paid the "ultimate sacrifice" in yesterday's terrorist atrocity.

The Conservative MP also paid tribute to fallen policeman, Keith Palmer, in his speech to the House of Commons today, saying he was “one of us.”

In his address he said: "The tribute to Keith and the police are that we are here today and our proceedings are going on.

"We have the arch that’s been spoken about before, which is a lasting memorial to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our democracy.

"I do hope that at an appropriate time, with discussion with the family, that we too may be able to look at a lasting memorial to Keith in order that each and every one of us know that there are people putting their lives on the line for our democracy today."
