All those arrested in connection with the Westminster attack have now been released by police.

This includes a 30-year-old man from Birmingham who was arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts and detained under the Terrorism Act.

The terror attacker, Khalid Masood, 52 was shot dead from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

All those arrested in connection with the Westminster terror attack have now been released with no further action, the Met police have said.

Suspicions over a potential wider extremist network intensified after it emerged he used WhatsApp just minutes before ploughing his auto into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge.

Inquests into the deaths have been opened and adjourned at Westminster Coroner's Court.

The full inquest is due to be held at the Royal Courts of Justice.

"Whilst we believe at this stage Masood acted alone in his execution of the attack, our investigation continues to establish whether there are any others involved in any way and I do emphasize this is a live investigation", Craig Mackey, acting head of London police, said on Wednesday.

The inquest into the death of Khalid Masood opened and adjourned on Thursday (30 March) under the same coroner.

British mother Aysha Frade, pensioner Leslie Rhodes and American tourist Kurt Cochran died of injuries sustained during the rampage.

In total, his attack on Westminster Bridge and the Palace of Westminster, which houses the UK Parliament, lasted 82 seconds.

Thousands of people joined hands in a vigil for the victims exactly a week after the attack on Wednesday, while tributes have been paid across the country.
