Hero MP Tobias Ellwood broke down during a live interview on BBC Breakfast today (March 22) as he reflected on last year’s Westminster terror attack.
Ellwood rushed to try to save PC Keith Palmer after Khalid Masood had driven his car into crowds of bystanders on Westminster Bridge and fatally stabbed Palmer, and he spoke about the day in a powerful interview with Charlie Stayt.
“The other reflection and vivid image I have is returning home after what had happened and finding my son on the top of the stairs and he was in tears and he was just on his own…,” he started, before breaking off and composing himself.
“I sat next to him and he… he just asked, ‘Why?’ I just said… He couldn’t understand why I’d stepped forward. Why somebody had been killed. Why somebody was yielding a knife in a place that he’d visited many times.
“All I could offer was that there are some bad people in the world but there are a lot more good people and it is the good people who win.”
Last year, Channel 4 News was reprimanded by broadcasting watchdog Ofcom for incorrectly reporting the wrong person as a suspect in the tragic attack in March.
Both broadcaster Simon Israel and Channel 4 News apologised for the mistake, but Ofcom still began investigating the incident days later, before the regulator found that Channel 4 breached “broadcasting rules”.
