Relatives of those killed in the Westminster terror attack have joined members of the Royal Family at a “service of hope” at Westminster Abbey.

Emergency services staff were among the 2,000-strong multi-faith.

Giving his address, the Dean of Westminster praised the unity of Britons and Londoners after the attack.

He said: “We stand together just as in this service the world faiths are represented and we will pray together above all for the gift of hope.

Labour MP Mary Creagh said the mood at the service was both sombre and resolute.

She said: “It's about how all of the public services worked together, how the systems that keep this city, our capital city, moving, worked together.

The Dean invited members of the congregation to light candles to honour the commitment. Prince William lit the first candle and the light was passed around to people at the service.
