LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (MARCH 23, 2017) (REUTERS) VARIOUS OF JUDITH TELFORD AND NATASHA FOX, RESEARCHERS AT THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT, WALKING WITH FLOWERS TOWARDS HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT (SOUNDBITE) (English) NATASHA FOX, PARLIAMENTARY RESEARCHER, SAYING: "I mean, I'm still kind of processing it. The crazy thing is that I'm speaking to a colleague outside Portcullis House and if we had spoken for a minute longer, you know I could have been right in the thick of it. That's not a way to think, because I'm very lucky and I shouldn't dwell on events that didn't happen but it was a massive shock. I just looked at the call, as soon as I heard on the news that it was 2:40 (0240 GMT), I looked and I was like I was on the phone, crossing that exact road around that time. I looked at my caller, 2:37 (0237 GMT). I'm very grateful. I'm so grateful how fast the security and police forces reacted. I am astounded at just their amazing professionalism. It's a real tribute." VARIOUS OF POLICE OFFICERS (SOUNDBITE) (English) NATASHA FOX, PARLIAMENTARY RESEARCHER, SAYING: "Signals are always great in this state, so actually if people won't be picking up their phones, that could be just because they didn't have service but you know you think the worst. So yes, It just felt kind of helpless outside, stood outside for hours, not sure what to do, but knowing that everybody, all my colleagues, were safe inside, or as safe as they could be inside and then just kind of waiting to see what news unfolded." HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT UNION FLAG FLYING AT HALF-MAST FROM THE TOP OF THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT SOUNDBITE (English) JUDITH TELFORD, PARLIAMENTARY RESEARCHER, SAYING: "Well, yesterday I was in the palace and actually I was with two of my friends who were visiting and I wanted to show them the terrace and as we were standing on the terrace, we noticed someone falling into the water and we heard this crash. At the time, I didn't... I thought actually someone had fallen in, you don't suspect anything more than that and we heard over a walkie-talkie from someone nearby saying that there had been shots fired and we all went inside and then the security services, they moved us to the central lobby." GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS ON WHITEHALL UNION FLAG FLYING AT HALF-MAST SOUNDBITE (English) JUDITH TELFORD, PARLIAMENTARY RESEARCHER, SAYING: "We were there for quite a long time. I think, we must have been in the central lobby for a couple of hours and then we were in Westminster hall for longer than that, until quite late but they made it very clear that there was medical attention and there was water and there was things there for us but really, us having to wait around for a few hours after what had just happened outside, I think, I mean, you wait. You do exactly what you're told. These people are here to protect you. When I think about what happened outside and to the people that were there, I feel heartbroken for them and their families and feel grateful that I had so many brave people around me at the time." VARIOUS OF FORENSICS TEAMS WORKING OUTSIDE PARLIAMENT SOUNDBITE (English) JUDITH TELFORD, PARLIAMENTARY RESEARCHER, SAYING: "And I was with ... there was a group of children and they started singing and I just was really quite proud of how everyone else behaved and the teachers did a tremendous job. I think we should all be really proud of them." JUDITH TELFORD AND NATASHA FOX WALKING WITH FLOWERS PAST CENOTAPH WAR MEMORIAL NEAR PARLIAMENT
