LONGEST 80 SECONDS OF MY LIFE: Scotland Yard Chief Recounts Terror Attack

Sir Craig Mackey was being driven from a meeting with Policing Minister Brandom Lewis when Khalid Masood struck right at the heart of our democracy and murdered an unarmed police officer during the Westminster terror attack on March 22nd last year.

Testifying at the inquest into the death of PC Keith Palmer, Mackey described “confusion” as Masood, who was “clearly a threat” attacked. The doors to the car Sir Craig was about to travel in were locked as he watched on in horror. Describing Masood he said: “The attacker had one of those looks where, if they get you in that look, they would he after you.”

It was all over in a blink of an eye: “The thing that shakes me about the attack is that it was 80-plus seconds in total. It didnt feel like that, it felt an awfully long time.”

His first instinct was to get out of the car and assist officers however he was “quite rightfully”, as he was without any equipment, told by a PC to “shut the door”. Masood was shot following the death of PC Palmer.
