A BOURNEMOUTH politician has said the government should 'hold its hands up' over the London Bridge terror attack.

Appearing on ITV's this Morning, Tobias Ellwood - who was declared a hero after trying to save PC Keith Palmer during a terror attack at the Houses of Parliament in 2017 - was flanked by two of the people who had tackled Usman Khan during his murderous rampage.

"Let's put our hand up and say mistakes were made," said Mr Ellwood, whose own brother died in the terror attack in Bali in 2002. "We need more resources. We need to make sure there is an appeal process that works," he said.

"How can somebody have their sentence reduced by eight years and not even face a parole board to check whether or not they are safe to put out back onto the streets? We must own up to that."

Mr Ellwood is standing for election again in his Bournemouth East seat.
