Farron's response to London terror attack

June 4, 2017 8:38 PM

Following the terror attack in London last night, Tim Farron said:

"It is heart-breaking to see yet another terror attack hit our streets, while the country is still coming to terms with the tragedy of what took place in Manchester.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, and I would like to pay tribute to the emergency services for their professional response in such terrible circumstances.

"The terrorists kill us because they hate us and what we stand for. They hate our democracy and our freedom. We refuse to let them win. We must respond with a vigorous commitment to our democracy.

"The election must go ahead as planned. It is right that we suspend our national campaigning for a short while out of respect for those affected by these tragic events, but local campaigning can and must continue.

"The remainder of this campaign must be a collective showing of defiance and pride in our democratic values."
