Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire David Keane has condemned yesterday’s attack at Westminster.

David said: “I was shocked and appalled to see how the events in London unfolded yesterday. It was a cowardly act and is an example of how our dedicated police officers, staff and volunteers risk their lives every day to protect us. My thoughts are with all those, both inside and outside of the police family, who have been so deeply affected by this incident.”

“I do hope local residents across Cheshire will see this attack for what it appears to have been – a senseless act of violence committed by an extremist individual.”

“I have spoken to the Chief Constable and I want all our communities to be assured that our Constabulary is working hard to keep our communities safe and provide visible reassurance across the county.”

“Individuals who commit such violent and terrible acts do so often in an attempt to divide us. I believe that in Cheshire we can show that our communities will only be strengthened and more united together.”
