Westminster incident - City of London Police statement

City of London Police Commander Jane Gyford said:

“Our deepest sympathies remain with everyone affected by yesterday’s horrific incident in Westminster, including those still in a critical condition in hospital, and those who tragically lost their lives, including PC Keith Palmer from the Metropolitan Police Service.

“In the coming days you will see more police officers on duty on the streets of London, armed and unarmed, as we do everything we can to reassure the public, working closely with our colleagues from the Metropolitan Police Service and British Transport Police.

“We have focused our resources in order to provide an increased presence in the capital, and will be working hard locally to reassure our business and resident communities in the Square Mile.

“I want to reassure the public of the measures we are taking to ensure their safety in the City and wider capital, and I’d like to thank the public for all their support at this difficult time.

“If you see anything that causes you concern or raises your suspicions do not hesitate to call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321 or in an emergency 999.
