Masood, 52, killed three pedestrians with his car, before fatally stabbing a police officer on March 22.

According to a report in the BBC, no police officers were under criminal or misconduct investigation over the shooting.

“An inquest into Masood’s four victims was opened and adjourned by Dr Wilcox on Wednesday,” the report said.

The court heard that Masood, who lived in Birmingham, sped across Westminster Bridge in a Hyundai car and crashed the vehicle.

After the crash, Masood ran into the Palace of Westminster grounds armed with two knives.

According to senior investigating officer John Crossley, Masood had been challenged by armed police, before being shot and killed by an officer.

Masood died at the scene after being shot by police.

Westminster coroner Fiona Wilcox extended her sympathies to Masood’s family saying they were also victims.
