The Mayor of Exmouth has written to the Mayor of London, expressing his condolences on behalf of the town, following the terror attack which took place on Saturday evening (June 3).
Seven people were killed, and dozens injured, in the incident in the area of London Bridge and Borough Market.
In the letter to London mayor Sadiq Khan, Councillor Brian Cole said: “On behalf of the citizens of Exmouth, we send our sincere condolences to the people of London after having heard of the terrible incident which occurred on London Bridge and around Borough Market.
“My wife is a Londoner and we know the area quite well. We cannot conceive what level of terror was inflicted on innocent members of the public.
“It is devastating to have a second incident of this magnitude within a fortnight of that which happened in Manchester. We wish you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with the people of London and those who were injured during the incident.
“We applaud the courage and strength of those members of the emergency services and members of the public who moved towards the incident to give comfort to the victims.
“We pray that the city will continue to show its solid support for its residents, as you continue to support one another in any way that you can.
“Our thoughts go out to members of the emergency services who have had to bear the brunt of dealing with these atrocities.”
