A retired window cleaner caught up in the Westminster terror attack was "placid, quiet and kind", his inquest heard.

Pensioner Leslie Rhodes, 75, was on his way back from an appointment at nearby St Thomas's hospital when he was killed.

His niece Amanda Rhodes told how Mr Rhodes was born in Battersea, south-west London, as the youngest of three children.

Ms Rhodes spoke of how the family were "devastated" and "incredibly angry" on hearing of his death.

"Everyone loved him. He would do anything to help anyone who needed it," she said.

He loved his job as a window cleaner and would stop and enjoy tea with his customers before his retirement.

Ms Rhodes said he had a very private life and, despite his advancing age, continued to climb ladders and ride his bicycle.

He enjoyed the cricket, growing tomatoes and listening to music.

His favourite Queen song - These Are The Days Of Our Lives - was played at his funeral, the hearing was told.

In a statement read out at the Old Bailey, she said: "Les will be greatly missed by all his family and friends who loved him.

"May he rest in eternal peace."
