London Bridge incident statements

29 November, 20:37

"Heartbreaking confirmation from the Met Commissioner that two people who were attacked this afternoon have tragically died - victims of the appalling terrorist attack at London Bridge. 

My heart goes out to them, their loved ones and to everybody affected. 

London will never be cowed by terrorism. Terrorism will never win.

I want to reassure Londoners and visitors that there will be enhanced police patrols, including firearms teams, on the streets of London this weekend. I will be attending the government's emergency COBRA meeting tonight."

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan

"The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that as a precaution the horrendous incident at London Bridge is being treated as though it is terrorism-related. 

I remain in close contact with the Metropolitan Police and am being kept updated with events. It has been confirmed that people were injured in the attack. My heart goes out to them, their families and all affected. 

Thank you to our brave emergency services who responded to today’s horrific attack. Every day they put their lives on the line for us – running towards danger in order to keep London safe.

We must – and we will - stay resolute in our determination to stand strong and united in the face of terror. Those who seek to attack us and divide us will never succeed. 

The London Bridge area remains closed – please avoid the area at this time and follow Met Police for further updates, and TfL for travel updates. If you are near the incident, please follow the directions of any officers on the ground.”

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
