Paddy Tipping's Statement on events in London

Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping said: “London has been bracing itself for attack for some time but no amount of training or risk assessment can prepare us for the shock and devastating emotional impact when such an incident unfolds. My deepest sympathies go out to the families of those killed or injured in this atrocity and the police officer’s colleagues within the Metropolitan Police Service. I would also like to pay tribute to the courage of those officers and emergency services staff who responded in the aftermath of yesterday’s tragedy. The events in the Capital have had a deeply unsettling effect on the police family as a whole and together we pray for the continued safety of our officers in the face of these daily risks.

This incident must unite our communities to reject violence and hatred and stand firm against any form of segregation. Nottinghamshire is a rich and diverse county and it is up to each and every one of us to protect the values of togetherness, acceptance and tolerance and fight against extremism.

If you have any information about suspected terrorism or see suspicious activity, please contact the anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321.”
