Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Labour Party & Leader of the Opposition, has released the following statement in response to the attack.
“Today’s horrific attack in Westminster has shocked the whole country. All our thoughts are with the victims of this outrage, their loved ones, families and friends.
Those victims include civilians and police officers, Londoners and visitors, subjected to a brutal and indiscriminate assault.
Our thanks and gratitude go to the police and emergency services who responded so bravely, and to those – including the MP Tobias Ellwood (Minister for Foreign Affairs) – who went to the aid of the injured and dying.
This was not only an attack on innocent people. It was also an attack on our democracy.
But I know that Londoners and people across the country will stand together in defence of our values and diversity.”
