As both a fellow New Yorker and a proud Londoner I am deeply saddened to see your great city under such pressure from Hurricane Sandy. I am hugely encouraged by your response, that of public employees of NYC and indeed the response of emergency services and the American people up and down the east coast.
Rest assured the people of London stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of New York at what is clearly an immensely difficult and challenging time.
As ever, with all best wishes
