Cheshire East opens books of condolence for London attack

Cheshire East Council has opened books of condolence as a mark of respect for the lives lost in the terrorist attack in Westminster.

The books are available for members of the public to sign during office hours at the council’s receptions at Macclesfield Town Hall, the Municipal Offices in Crewe and its HQ at Westfields, Sandbach.

Council leader Councillor Rachel Bailey, who signed the book of condolence in Macclesfield, said: “It is with tremendous sadness and horror that we have been following the unfolding news of the tragic events in London. It is utterly shocking and devastating that such a thing can happen and I would like to pay tribute to the bravery, selflessness and quiet dedication of the emergency services.

“This appalling attack was an attempt to undermine the very heart of our democracy and has led to the taking of the life of an officer who was dedicated to its defence. I, and people of this country, treasure our democracy and we will never let our values and communities be torn asunder by men of violence and hate.

“Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the bereaved and injured and we offer our thoughts and prayers to those that have been affected by this terrible tragedy.”
