LONDON BRIDGE VIGIL
Monday 5 June

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, will hold a vigil to honour

at Potters Fields Park, a very short distance from the
location of the attack. The Mayor is inviting all Londoners
- and everyone visiting our city - who would like to pay
their respects to join together at the park, next to City
Hall, at 6pm to remember those who have lost their lives, to
express sympathy with their families and loved ones and to
show the world that we stand united in the face of those who
seek to harm and divide us and to stop our way of life. As
well as Londoners and visitors, the Mayor will be joined by
senior representatives of the Metropolitan Police, the
British Transport Police, London Ambulance Service, London
Fire Brigade as well as civic, faith and community leaders.
Those who cannot make it to Potters Fields Park are invited
to observe a minute's silence at 6.20pm in solidarity.
