The Leader of Manchester City Council, Sir Richard Leese, has released a statement condemning the attack in London last night.
The attack in London, where seven people have died, came ahead of tonight's One Love Manchester benefit concert that is fundraising for victims of the Manchester Arena attack.
Manchester's thoughts and sympathies are with those affected by the appalling attack in London and in particular, with those who have tragically lost loved ones.
As a truly great city, I know that London will show strength and unity in the face of the terrorists who seek to sow division and fear by their despicable acts.
The people of Manchester have shown incredible togetherness and resolve in the aftermath of the recent attack on our city and this, I'm sure, will be demonstrated once again at tonight's One Love Manchester concert. While it is important that people remain vigilant, it is vital that we do not allow those who hate our way of life and our solidarity to prevail.
