Message from Commander Jane Gyford following Finsbury Park terrorist incident

Commander Jane Gyford from the City of London Police said:

“First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their loved ones  and all those who have been affected by the Finsbury Park attack. I echo the sentiments of my colleague from the Metropolitan Police Service, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu when he called for the public to stand together against extremists whatever their cause.

“Officers from our Community Relations Team will be visiting a number of centres in the City where those of Islamic faith regularly go to worship. They will be there to provide an increased visible presence to reassure worshippers as they attend Friday prayers.

"I commend the emergency services, who have again shown their professionalism and bravery when called upon. We, the City of London Police, are as committed as ever to keeping the Square Mile safe.”
