Boris Johnson: '7/7 killers failed in their aim'

Mayor of London Boris Johnson says the 7/7 killers "failed in their aim", but warned that the problem has not "gone away."

Speaking in Hyde Park ahead of a memorial service, he said the terrorists "didn't in any way change the fundamentals of London and what makes this city great", adding: "Indeed, it's gone from strength to strength in the 10 years since.

"I think most people would say that London has become even more cosmopolitan, even more welcoming."

But Mr Johnson said people must remember that "the problem has not gone away", adding: "We're as ready as we think we can be, and as you can imagine there are preparations going on all the time in the event of all kinds of attacks."

David Cameron has warned that the threat from terrorism remains "as real as it is deadly", as the UK marks ten years since bomb attacks killed 52 people in London.

In a statement, the Prime Minister - who will attend services across the capital later - called the attacks "one of the deadliest terrorist atrocities on mainland Britain".

He added that the recent murder of 30 "innocent Britons" in Tunisia was a "brutal reminder" of the threat still faced, adding: "But we will never be cowed by terrorism."

We will keep on doing all that we can to keep the British public safe, protecting vulnerable young minds from others’ extremist beliefs and promoting the shared values of tolerance, love and respect that make Britain so great.

– David Cameron
