Westminster Bridge attacker took steroids days before the attack

Khalid Masood, the man who killed 5 people in a car and knife attack on Westminster Bridge last year, beginning a wave of Islamist terrorism to hit the UK, took steroids days before he carried out the lethal attack. The information was revealed today during a pre-inquest hearing that ruled that Masood’s inquest would be held separately to the victims of the attack. The inquiry’s lawyer, Jonathan Hough said “A more specialist pharmaceutical toxicologist … has been instructed to prepare a report addressing how steroid use may have affected Khalid Masood.”

Khalid Masood killed 4 people and injured more than 50 on Westminster Bridge after driving his car into them, which saw one of the victims plunge into the water. He then crashed his car into the side of the Houses of Parliament and entered New Palace Yard where he fatally stabbed unarmed police officer PC Keith Palmer. An armed police officer who is believed to have been a Metropolitan Police closed protection officer for the Conservative MP Michael Fallon proceeded to shoot Khalid Masood dead. The devastating attack which saw the seat of British power attacked in such a barbaric fashion lasted only 82 seconds.
