“Last night our city suffered a horrifying and cowardly attack, the true extent of which is still becoming clear. London’s emergency services were at the scene within minutes and their brave and decisive action has clearly prevented the horror of this incident from affecting more innocent people.

"Wandsworth Council will be in close contact with the emergency services and will support their operation in anyway we can.”
