Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council: Manchester terror attack
“Following our statement this morning [Tuesday] I would like to again reassure residents, that the council is working closely with the Metropolitan Police during this difficult time.
“I spoke to Raj Kohli, Hounslow Police’s Borough Commander earlier today and he has informed me that there are extra visible police officers on patrol across Hounslow. Residents should remain calm but vigilant at all times.
“If you see anything that causes you concern or raises your suspicions, please don’t hesitate to call the Counter Terrorism Policing number: 0800 789 321 - or in an emergency 999.
“Once again, we send our sincere condolences to the people of Manchester and particularly to the family and friends of those killed and injured.
“Flags at the Civic Centre have been flying at half-mast today as a mark of respect and we will be holding a minute’s silence at the Annual Meeting of the Council/Borough Council this evening to remember victims of this horrific attack.”
