Statement on London Attacks

Barry has issued the following statement following the attacks in London last night:

"London this morning has responded with grief, with anger and with pride.

Grief for the victims of this senseless vicious attack.

Anger that these warped and disaffected terrorists seek to deprive us of our rights and freedoms.

Pride in the swift and decisive response from our police officers and from all those in our emergency services who, regardless of their own safetyu, dutifully went about their calm work of saving lives and comforting victims.

Londoners have been the target of such attacks before. Through our determination and unity we have always shown them to be futile.

They can never defeat us. They can never defeat the precious values which we hold at the heart of our great city."
