A funeral for the hero police officer who died trying to stop a terrorist during the Westminster terror attack will be held in the coming days.
PC Keith Palmer was stabbed to death as he tried to stop crazed killer Khalid Masood after the terrorist crashed into the gates of the Palace of Westminster before being shot dead. Five innocent people were killed in the attack.
Hundreds of people are expected to gather and remember the officer, including his colleagues from the force, at the full police service funeral in central London.
His friends, family and even his beloved Charlton Athletic football club have paid tribute to the “amazing and wonderful” fallen officer.
The Metropolitan Police has now released details on when and where the celebration of PC Palmer’s life will be held, and the roads that will be affected during the cortege.
Here's all the details on when the funeral is, where it will take place and how you can watch the procession.
When and where is the funeral?
The “full-force” funeral of the 48-year-old husband and father will be held at Southwark Cathedral.

What route will it take?
