We will honour PC Keith Palmer as we take to the streets of London to #StandforKeith

A Full Force funeral will be held today to honour, remember and mourn for PC Keith Palmer.

PC Palmer, a south Londoner and loyal Charlton Athletic fan, who had spent most of his policing career serving within south London, will have his funeral at Southwark Cathedral at 14:00hrs on Monday, 10 April.

Hundreds of people will gather to remember much missed PC Palmer; a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle and best friend.

The service will be attended by around 50 members of PC Palmer’s family including his wife, child, mum and dad, brother and sisters

Officers from the Metropolitan Police Service, who served alongside PC Palmer during his career – which spanned more than 15 years – and from the wider service, will be joined by colleagues from the forces of England and Wales to honour their fallen colleague.

5000 police officers from across the country will also line the streets of London in a sow of support for the family of PC Palmer.
