Manchester Attack: Campaign Suspended

Following the news of last night’s horrifying attack at the Manchester Arena, we have suspended all national campaigning until further notice.

Tim Farron was due in Gibraltar today as part of the election campaign.  He tweeted this morning:

In further comment he said, “This is a shocking and horrific attack targeting children and young people who were simply enjoying a concert.

“My deepest sympathies are with the victims, and with families who have lost loved ones, as well as those desperately waiting for news.

“I would like to pay tribute to the bravery and dedication of the emergency services.

“This is an attack on innocent people and the nation is united both in its grief and its determination to stand up to this deplorable attack.”

Former Manchester MP John Leech tweeted:

If you are concerned about anyone you know who may have been in the area the police helpline number is 0161 856 9400
