The Metropolitan Police officer was stabbed to death by a man during the terrorist attack on Parliament in March.

His funeral will take place at Southwark Cathedral in south London, and emergency services personnel plan to line the route of his cortege to pay their respects, including along London Bridge.

Valid ID or a warrant card must be shown to claim free travel in standard class.
