The Leaders and Mayors of the ten UK Core Cities came together in London today with GLA and London Councils and have issued the following joint statement.

“In the light of last week’s tragic events in Westminster, the Leaders and Mayors of the UK’s Core Cities stand with London in the fight against extremism. Our diverse and peaceful communities are a shared strength of our cities, alongside a realisation that there is far more that unites than divides us. Our heartfelt sympathies are with those who were killed, injured or were affected by last Wednesday’s awful events.

"Our cities remain open, tolerant and diverse places to live, work and visit. We stand united against those who promote division and will continue to work with partners and communities across all our cities to strengthen our common bonds.”
