The British High Commission is opening a book of condolences in Wellington for New Zealanders to pay tribute to the victims of the London terror attack.

The book at the Australian High Commission in Thorndon will open on Monday morning and afternoon and will be an opportunity for public to express sympathy for the victims of the attack.

British High Commission staff are working from the Australian High Commission building following recent earthquakes.

Five people died in the attack on Westminster Bridge and outside the Houses of Parliament on March 23, including the attacker and a police officer.

At least 50 people were injured, 31 of whom required hospital treatment.

Two of those people are still in a critical condition, and two police officers are still in hospital.

Khalid Masood, 52, drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before crashing it outside parliament and trying to enter the building, armed with knives.
