Charlton pay tribute to Westminster victim PC Keith Palmer

The police officer who tragically lost his life on Wednesday has had tributes paid to him by the League One side, the team he supported

Charlton Athletic have paid tribute to PC Keith Palmer, an Addicks fan who was killed during a terrorist attack in London.

Unarmed police officer Palmer was stabbed to death outside the Palace of Westminster as part of an attack which claimed three lives - in addition to that of the assailant - and left seven others in a critical condition.

The 48-year-old was a season-ticket holder at The Valley and Charlton will lay a club scarf across his seat until they next play at home on April 4, with plans to commemorate Palmer's life during the game against Milton Keynes Dons.

The Football Association are planning a tribute to the emergency services involved ahead of England's World Cup qualifier against Lithuania at Wembley on Sunday.
