Manchester terror attack: South west London politicians pay tribute to victims

Candidates from across south west London have sent messages of condolence to victims of the Manchester terror attack, in which 22 people, including children, have been killed.

The attack, believed to have been carried out by a lone suicide bomber, occurred after the end of a concert by singer Ariana Grande.

Campaigning for the general election has been suspended and Theresa May is chairing a meeting of COBRA — the government’s emergency committee.

The Croydon Central Hustings, which were due to take place this evening, have been cancelled.

Flags have also been lowered at buildings across south west London.

Sarah Olney, James Berry, Gavin Barwell and Chuka Umunna are among those who posted tribute messages on Twitter.
