Statement by Mayor John Biggs on Manchester Attack

Mayor of Tower Hamlets John Biggs said:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Manchester after last night's heartless and cowardly attack. Nothing can ever justify the murder of innocent children.

“Londoners know the dreadful impact these attacks can have and we all stand in solidarity with the people of Manchester. It is more important than ever that we stand shoulder to shoulder to show that these cowardly attacks will not divide us, nor do the attackers represent any race or religion.

“It is only right that there is an increased police presence on our streets to reassure and protect our community. I would urge residents to report anything suspicious to police.”
