MP Tobias Ellwood who tried to save officer 'a hero'

By Staff Reporter

Foreign Office Minister Tobias Ellwood has been branded a "hero MP" after trying to save the life of the police officer killed in the Westminster terror attack.

Mr Ellwood, whose brother Jonathan was killed in the 2002 Bali bombing, was pictured with blood on his face and clothes as he battled to help the officer.

He told The Sun later: "It is now murder, I was on the scene and as soon as I realised what was going on I headed towards it.

"It is a huge tragedy, it really is.

"I tried to stem the flow of blood and give mouth to mouth while waiting for the medics to arrive but I think he had lost too much blood. He had multiple wounds, under the arm and in the back.

"As I understand it the attacker has also died. I'm not allowed to say anything, I'll get into trouble. It's very sad," the newspaper reported him saying.
