Statement from Richmond Council’s Head of Community Safety regarding the Terror attack at London Bridge and Borough Market


I’m sure you will have seen on the news the appalling and tragic incident that took place on Saturday night.

Our thoughts are with all of those affected, those injured and the families of those people who died whilst enjoying a Saturday night out.

We do not yet have full details of the victims.

There was a national minute's silence held today at 11am in remembrance and there is a book of condolence open at Southwark Council headquarters in Tooley Street.

It will move to Southwark Cathedral once the police cordon around the site of the Borough Market attack is lifted.

Many people have stood together in the rain to pay their respects and lay flowers.

We mourn together, and we come together in solidarity and condemnation of the terrorist attacks.

The police investigation still continues, the third suspect has now been named and further arrests have been made.

There will also be police out on patrol in Richmond.

This is a worrying time for people – and we still need your help.

We are asking that you remain vigilant and that if you see anything suspicious, anything at all, or you are concerned about anyone at all, even if you think it is very insignificant, don't hesitate to contact us on the anti-terrorism hotline on 0800 789 321.

Your information could be vital.

We also know that some people in Richmond feel worried and that others may seek to use these terrible circumstances to divide communities.

Police and council staff from the Community Safety Service will be contacting community and faith organisations to see how people are feeling over the next few days.

Hate crime will not be tolerated and all incidents will be treated seriously if you have experienced hate crime please report it as soon as possible.

In an emergency dial 999 or call 101 to report it to the police.
