London Bridge attack: 6 June update

6 June 2017

Police still have a cordon in place in and around the Borough Market area. We have no news at the moment when this will be lifted and residents will be able to return home. If you are affected by this and are able to make arrangements to stay with family or friends please do so. If you aren’t able to make arrangements please contact the council’s call centre on 020 7525 5000 24 hours a day, or visit our offices on 160 Tooley Street during office hours.

Volunteers and Donations – we do not currently need volunteers but thank you to everyone who has offered their services. If you want to make a donation the Red Cross has set up a UK Solidarity Fund.

If you have been affected by the events at the weekend there is information on getting emotional support and advice on the Home Office website.

Council leader Cllr Peter John responds to the horrific attack on London Bridge on behalf of Southwark Council.

Cllr John said: “This was a pointless and horrific attack which has caused real and great harm but will achieve nothing. As ever, the emergency services have responded heroically , and I would like to thank them for all they have done and continue to do following these awful events.

"Just one attack of this sort is devastating, but as a city and a country we have suffered far too much in recent months. Southwark is an amazing borough and we are strongest when we stand together, support one another, and choose unity in the face of hatred.”
