Statement from Cllr Ed Davie, Cllr Lib Peck and Cllr Diana Morris:
As the three councillors representing the area we are very concerned to hear of these awful attacks. Our thoughts are with those who have been injured and the family and friends of the woman who died. Although it is reassuring that the police have someone in custody and are not looking for anyone else we will be making sure that any lessons that can be learnt from this incident are acted on as soon as possible. Ed will be at his surgery on Thursday between 7 and 8pm at the Headlam Road Community Centre if anyone wants to come and discuss their concerns.
Chuka Umunna MP:
“The entire community will be deeply disturbed and upset at what happened on the Roupell Park and Clapham Park estates last night. The thoughts of all of us are with the loved ones of the woman who was fatally injured and the other victims of these horrific attacks.”
“I have been fully briefed by the police on this incident and an investigation is currently ongoing. Our hope is that the perpetrator of these acts will be brought to justice. As a community, we will give the loved ones of the victims all the support that we can.”
