Responding to the murderous attack in London on Friday, Daniel Zeichner has called an immediate halt to election campaigning in the city. He said:
“Last night’s murderous attack has shocked everyone. It seems to have been targeted on an event being held by the Institute of Criminology in the University of Cambridge, an event focused on rehabilitation. We do not yet know the full details, but it will clearly have had a devastating and traumatic effect on people from in and around Cambridge, those organising the event and attending in particular. All our thoughts are with those who have lost their lives and have been injured, and our thanks go to the emergency services and those who intervened at considerable risk to themselves.”
Today’s hustings event at 12 noon at Great St Mary’s is likely to be replaced by a church service.
