Council leader Cllr Peter John responds to the horrific attack on London Bridge on behalf of Southwark Council.
Cllr John said: “This was a pointless and horrific attack which has caused real and great harm but will achieve nothing. As ever, the emergency services have responded heroically , and I would like to thank them for all they have done and continue to do following these awful events.
“Just one attack of this sort is devastating, but as a city and a country we have suffered far too much in recent months. Southwark is an amazing borough and we are strongest when we stand together, support one another, and choose unity in the face of hatred.”
Anyone affected by the events on Saturday night please visit the Home Office website at for guidance and support.
