Borders sends message of support to Manchester following attack

GREATER Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said it was hard to put into words what had happened. Five fire engines were eventually dispatched, but by then all the most risky work had been done.

"We are grieving today, but we are strong", he added. Our first thoughts are with the families of those killed and injured.

And Andy Street, West Midlands Combined Authority mayor, also revealed he was "deeply shocked at the news from Manchester", emphasising: "We must all be particularly vigilant today as we demonstrate solidarity and defiance". "I will remind people in late Cox's words, we are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us". There is nothing courageous about attacking young and vulnerable at a concert."Reacting to back-to-back terror attacks, Dasgupta said from London, "This is the second attack in recent months but one of the many round the globe that have been targeting vulnerable people - The Pulse attack in U.S., the United Kingdom parliament attack and the assassination MP Jo Cox previous year - which London mayor Sadiq Khan pointed as: "Those who want to destroy our way of life and divide us will never succeed'".

Even in the minutes after the attack, their opened their doors to strangers and drove them away from danger. "Terrorism can happen anywhere and Manchester is expressing the best response the north of England can offer, they have come together to defy those who wish them harm".

"We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack", May said. My thoughts are with families and friends of those who have died and been injured.

"I would like to pay tribute to the bravery and dedication of the emergency services".

"I have spoken with the prime minister and we have agreed that that all national campaigning in the general election will be suspended until further notice".
