Statement from City of London Police Commissioner Ian Dyson QPM of the City following the terror attacks in London Bridge and Borough Market

“Once again the UK has been subject to a horrific terrorist attack, and once again Police officers were at the forefront, showing remarkable bravery as they defended people against the evil of terrorism. My thoughts and prayers, and those of the officers and staff of City of London Police, are with those who lost loved ones or sustained injuries in the attack on Saturday night.

“City of London Police are working alongside colleagues from the Metropolitan Police Service and British Transport Police in a co-ordinated, pan-London Policing response to the terrorist threat. As the City returns to work on Monday morning, people will see more officers, both armed and unarmed, on patrol as we seek to reassure everyone in this most resilient of Cities.”
