Essex Police have arrested a man after he was photographed as he urinated next to a police memorial in central London.
The memorial is for PC Keith Palmer; the brave, unarmed officer, who was stabbed to death by Khalid Masood in 2017 in Westminster.
PC Palmer, despite only having an ASP and a can of CS Spray, confronted deranged knife-wielding Masood after he had just murdered four pedestrians on Westminster Bridge after the coward drove over them with his car.
Masood was shot dead by a close protection officer who was nearby when the incident unfolded.
A picture of a male urinating next to PC Palmer’s memorial went viral as violent protests broke out across the capital.
The Met Police confirmed that on Sunday, a 28-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency after he handed himself in to a police station.
