London Bridge and Borough Market terrorist attack

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council said:

“Our thoughts are with everyone involved in last night's terrible events at London Bridge and Borough Market.

“We are grateful for the bravery of our emergency services and for the work of the Metropolitan Police who are responding to last night’s attack.

“In Camden we stand in solidarity with our fellow Londoners in Southwark today. This is a city made great by our open, strong communities and our spirit will not be defeated by these acts.”

An emergency number has been established for anyone who is concerned for loved ones. The Casualty Bureau number is 0800 0961 233.

Residents are asked to stay calm but remain vigilant. You can also report anything suspicious to the police by calling 0800 789 321. If you feel in immediate danger please call 999.

If you are confronted by a potentially dangerous situation, the Police advise “Run, Hide, Tell”.

RUN to a place of safety. This is a far better option than to surrender or negotiate. If there’s nowhere to go, then…

HIDE. It’s better to hide than to confront. Remember to turn your phone to silent and turn off vibrate. Barricade yourself in if you can.

Then finally and only when it is safe to do so…

TELL the police by calling 999.

At this time we remind everyone to remain calm but alert. If you see anything that causes you concern, then report it immediately. We will not allow these dreadful attacks to divide us or to undermine our freedoms.
