There were in Leeds, Leicester, Sheffield, Manchester and Birmingham, and many people walked over Westminster Bridge.

Police officers, doctors and members of a young Muslims association turned out in tribute to Aysha Frade, 44, a teacher, US tourist Kurt Cochran, 54, and retired window cleaner Leslie Rhodes, 75, who were all killed after being run over on Westminster Bridge.

The attacker then fatally stabbed PC Keith Palmer outside Parliament, before being shot dead by police.

Zafir Malik, an imam from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, said his members were "here to show that we are united with our fellow countrymen and remembering those who have fallen, especially PC Keith Palmer".

As the UK came to terms with the events at Westminster, Brits further afield were similarly struck by feelings of grief.

Over in New Zealand, Adele performed an emotional tribute to those involved during her concert in Auckland on Thursday.

The London-born singer told fans that it felt "strange" not being at home before dedicating her hit single Make You Feel My Love to the victims.

"Today there was a terror attack in my hometown of London," she said.

"I'm literally on the other side of the world and I want them to see our lights and to hear us," she said.

"It's very strange not being home, all I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family".

She added: "All of them are fine, but there are four people who aren't fine, so let's dedicate this to them tonight."

James Corden was another Brit who was far away from home, and he paid tribute on The Late Late Show, James summed up the feelings of Britons and Londoners when he said that he didn't feel glad to be so far away, but wished he could be with loved ones "to stand alongside them".

"I know a lot of people in Britain watch this show, as there's a lot of people from Britain who work on this show, and of course, our thoughts go out to everyone who's been affected by this," he said. "Watching the news today, I felt a really long, long way from home. And it's funny when something like that happens in your hometown, you don't have a feeling of being glad that you're so far away. What you feel is that you wish you could be there with loved ones to stand alongside them."

He described London as "a diverse and proud and brilliant city."

At the time the show aired, Corden and his team were not aware of the full extent of the attack.

The BBC reports that in raids made throughout the night.

Speaking on his show, Corden added: "One thing is for sure, if this act of terrorism was supposed to divide the people of London, I know for a fact that all something like this does is bring them closer together as one.

"Tonight we send our heartfelt thoughts to everybody in Britain. Stay safe everybody, please."
