Steve White, Chair, Police Federation of England and Wales, said:
“Our thoughts go out to all those affected in last night’s cowardly attack.
“The spineless actions of those responsible aim to divide and disrupt but ultimately, as we saw in Manchester last week, and Westminster in March, they unite and strengthen our communities.
“Once again police officers and the emergency services stepped up to the challenge, putting their lives on the line for others as they do day in and day out and showing why they are the best at what they do. Their actions undoubtedly saved many lives and we owe them and the other emergency responders a debt of gratitude.”
