Statement from Cllr Stephen Cowan – Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council:

This terrorist incident on a tube at Parsons Green station was yet another abhorrent attempt to divide and harm Londoners.

I would like to thank the emergency services and TfL staff who responded quickly and bravely to help the wounded to safety and make the station safe.

Our heart-felt sympathy goes out to those wounded in the attack. And our message to those that try to kill and maim is that we remain united in the face of terrorist threats.
