London mayor thanks emergency workers after London Bridge attack

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan praised emergency workers in the aftermath of Friday's stabbing attack at London Bridge-- saying the incident could have been "far, far worse" had it not been for their swift operation while visiting the city's ambulance service on Saturday (November 29).

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LONDON MAYOR, SADIQ KHAN, SAYING: "And what you saw on Friday in London was an example of the very best response in the world: The police city of London, the Met police service, British transport police, but also the London Ambulance Service, because they practiced, they prepared.

And when the operation was called Plato - it became a major incident.

You had teams there very quickly.

A control room set up because it could have been far, far worse.

And it gives me confidence that we're doing all we can to keep our city safe." Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said sentencing rules needed to be toughened up in light of the incident, after it was revealed that attacker Usman Khan had previously been convicted of terrorism offenses but freed early from jail.
