Absolutely heartbreaking that such a monstrous attack could happen and so hard to hear that it happened in a location in a city that I know so well and love so much. - - My thoughts are with those who had their lives so cruelly taken, the families and friends of those poor people and all those who witnessed this simply awful, awful attack. - - We are all deeply shaken by this but it is so incredibly clear that we all stand together. - - My thanks go to those who offered support to the injured, the lost and the frightened. - - I had teenage family members who managed to get away and home safely thanks to kind coach drivers who brought them and others all the way home to Blackpool. I am so grateful to those kind people and so proud to see the resilience, inner strength and support that was and is being offered in so many different ways. - - We are human and we are flawed but in times of need as long as we continue to all pull together we can hold our heads high. They will not win.
