Joint statement on the London Bridge terror attack from council leader Tony Newman and borough commander Chief Superintendent Jeff Boothe
“Our thoughts are with those killed and injured in the horrific attack at London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday evening and with families and friends affected. The bravery of our emergency services during the incident was so impressive. We want to express our gratitude to them for the way they tackled the perpetrators and the way they helped the citizens caught up in the attack.
“We will not allow this mindless act to stop us carrying on with our lives and want to reassure you that we will work tirelessly to keep the people of Croydon safe, and work with colleagues from across the capital to ensure that we share our intelligence and information.
“Croydon will be joining the rest of the UK in a minute’s silence to remember those killed and injured in the attack. This will take place on Tuesday 6 June at 11am.”
