ON GUARD: Police in Trafalgar Square today

FOLLOWING YESTERDAY’S tragic terror attack in Westminster, the London Mayor Sadiq Khan has extended an invitation for all to attend a candlelit vigil in Trafalgar Square tonight.

In an official statement, the Mayor called for "everyone to come together in solidarity to remember those who have lost their lives, to express sympathy with their families and loved ones and to show the world that we are more committed than ever to the values that we hold dear – that we remain united and open."

He continued:

"London is the greatest city in the world. We will never be cowed by terrorism. We stand together, in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have, and we always will."

Mr. Khan told the BBC:

"We can't allow these terrorists to be successful. We are going to be defiant, resilient”.

The vigil will start at 6pm and all are welcome.
