A charity donations page set up by a British Muslim to raise money for the families of the Westminster terror attack has raised nearly £18,000 in two days. 

Four people were killed and up to 40 people injured after Khalid Masood launched an attack on Westminster on Wednesday afternoon.

He drove his car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, before fatally stabbing PC Keith Palmer in the grounds of the Palace of Westminster. 

The Muslims United for London page was set up by Muddassar Ahmed - who witnessed the attack on Wednesday - in coordination with the Metropolitan Police Foundation to raise money for the victims and their families. 

The target for the funds is £20,000 - a target which was raised after donations exceeded £10,000 in 15 hours.
