I absolutely condemn the horrific actions which took place in Woolwich yesterday afternoon. Praise should go to the club scout leader Ingrid Loyau-Kennett for bravely attempting to defuse the situation before security forces arrived. The Government’s immediate reaction and the reconvention of COBRA last night shows that such actions will not be tolerated in the UK. David Cameron’s statement this morning and the actions taken by the police and security forces subsequently, reinforces this message. Our thoughts are with the family of the victim concerned.
