Statement from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, on Parsons Green Terrorist Attack
15 September 2017
What we’ve seen today is an attempt by evil and cowardly terrorists to kill, to injure and to disrupt our way of life.
What we’ve also seen today is the heroic efforts from Transport for London staff, from Londoners, from paramedics, from the fire service, from the police service – showing us at our very best.
We will not allow terrorists to divide our communities.
We will never allow terrorists to succeed.
Londoners will see, over the course of today and the next few days, an enhanced police presence, and the police are there to make sure we are safe.
My message to Londoners is to be alert, to be vigilant – not to be alarmed, but to stay calm [at] all times.
