All 12 people arrested in connection with last month's terror attack outside the Houses of Parliament have been released with no further action, the Metropolitan Police have said.

A 30-year-old man arrested on 26 March in Birmingham on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts and detained under the Terrorism Act was released today.

Eleven others who were arrested in connection with the investigation had already been released with no further action.

The attack at Westminster on 22 March left five dead, including the attacker, 52-year-old Khalid Masood from Kent. The Prime Minister told the House of Commons the attacker was "known to MI5".

The Queen honoured Tobias Ellwood and Ben Wallace, two members of Parliament who were directly involved in the response to the attack.

Ellwood tried to resuscitate the police officer stabbed by the attacker, while Wallace was involved in the government’s response.
