PFEW Chair John Apter responds to the suspected terrorist attack outside The Houses of Parliament in Westminster today.

In a statement he said: “My thoughts are with those affected by the incident outside Parliament in Westminster this morning.

“I commend our colleagues in London and other emergency services for their fast and professional response.

“Every day police officers put themselves in harm’s way, putting their lives on the line to protect the public and this is another example of the crucial but incredibly dangerous job they do. They sign on their shift having no idea what they are going to face that day and their selfless actions and bravery is admirable.

 “I am relieved to hear that those injured in what seems to be a cowardly attack are not believed to be in a life threatening condition – my thoughts are with them and their families at this time."
