After the weekend’s terrible events in London, colleagues and visitors to the Council’s buildings will have the opportunity to join with others across the UK in observing a minute’s silence at 11.00 am this morning in remembrance of the victims of Saturday’s terrorist attack.

My thoughts, and I’m sure yours, are with the families and friends of the victims, with the members of the emergency services and with the people of London.

Meanwhile, it is incumbent on us all to continue with our daily lives as before, but we must remain vigilant and be aware of the latest security advice.
