Students on a field trip to the Houses of Parliament injured in the London terrorist attack

Four students from Edge Hill University in Lancashire were among the 40 people injured in yesterday's attack at Westminster in London. They were part of a group of 13 students on a visit, with a lecturer, to the Houses of Parliament.

Two students, Owen Lambert and Travis Frain were hit when the attacker's car drove along the pavement on Westminster Bridge. They were described as "walking wounded" until help arrived.

Mr Lambert required stitches for a head wound, and Mr Frain suffered a wrist injury. Two other students also needed treatment for other injuries.

Vice chancellor of Edge Hill University, Dr John Cater, said that the students were on the first leg of a two-day visit to London. They had been inside the House of Commons watching Prime Minister's Questions two hours before the attack.

All students on the trip and also the lecturer who accompanied them have been accounted for and are safe.
