The whole nation will grieve for the dead of Manchester – Corbyn on terror attack

23rd May, 2017 8:16 am

This is the full statement published Jeremy Corbyn following last night’s terror attack in Manchester.

I am horrified by the horrendous events in Manchester last night. My thoughts are with families and friends of those who have died and  been injured.

Today the whole country will grieve for the people who have lost their lives.

I have spoken with Andy Burnham, the mayor of Manchester, who has fully briefed me on the operational response in the city.

I would like to pay tribute to the emergency services for their bravery and professionalism in dealing with last night’s appalling events.

I have spoken with the prime minister and we have agreed that that all national campaigning in the general election will be suspended until further notice.
