London Under Attack: What We Know

London Under Attack: What We Knowby

It has already been a tragic few weeks for the UK, with the aftermath of the killing of 22 people – children among them – at Manchester Arena on May 22nd still reverberating. The disaster was perpetrated by a suicide bomber (not included in the death toll) – but there has been further tragedy unfold further down the country over the weekend.

At the time of writing, at least seven people have been killed with at least 48 more taken to hospital as a result of a vehicle-driven attack on innocent people in London Bridge late on the evening of June 3rd. The attack was followed by random knife assaults from several terrorists who have been killed by the police in response to the chaos unfolding. It is thought that investigations and arrests are already taking place, and as a mark of respect, election campaigning has been put on hold – for the second time during the past month.

Prime Minister Theresa May was quick to make a public statement and to assert that ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to extremism, stating that a four-point plan would be put into place in an event to tackle such tragedies from unfolding even further. May’s critics have been quick to advise that the Prime Minister may still be using political language in her discourse – but it remains to be said that the public is in need of reassurance during this time.

The Home Office website has set up a page for those affected by or concerned by the attacks, and it has been confirmed that a minute’s silence will take place in the UK at 11am on Tuesday June 6th. This silence will be, of course, held in remembrance of those killed in the attack – as many more families now face life without loved ones as a result of terrorist activity. The UK’s main party leaders have also come forward and offered their condolences for families affected, with parties having agreed to temporarily halt electioneering until further notice. The big vote, however, is thought to still be going ahead on Thursday, June 8th.

This latest attack on UK soil will likely have caused further reverberations up and down the country – and while we have little information beyond what the main media outlets are reporting at this time, you can rest assured that we will keep you up to speed with any developments.
