City pays tribute to victims of London Bridge terror attack

A book of condolence will be opened at Guildhall Art Gallery tomorrow for people to express their sympathies following the London Bridge terror attack.

A vigil will also be held in Guildhall Yard at 11.00 on Monday to honour victims of last Friday’s attack, as well as those members of the public and emergency services who risked their lives to help others.

Lord Mayor of the City of London William Russell said:

“We stand united in the face of this appalling attack and will not let terror divide us. The City will come together tomorrow to pay tribute to the victims, as well as those members of the public and emergency services who demonstrated remarkable bravery in the face of danger.”

Catherine McGuinness, Policy Chair at the City of London Corporation, said:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this terrible attack. We are incredibly grateful for the swift response of the emergency services and members of the public on Friday. This incident showcased Londoners at their very best: working together and risking their lives to help others.”

People looking to express their sympathies following the London Bridge terror attack can also lay flowers at Walbrook outside Mansion House.
