29 Nov, 2019

Victim Support Europe strongly condemns the attack that took place in London on Friday 29 November 2019. Our thoughts are with the victims and families on this tragic day.

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that as a precaution the horrendous incident at London Bridge is being treated as though it is terrorism-related.

Out of respect for the victims and their families please do not share any images or videos of victims on social media or on the internet.
