I am linking the crimes. We are treating this as a racist offense.
I am afraid there are two dead.
This was a calculated, evil act by people who were seeking to maim and kill. We are extremely fortunate that people were not killed here last night.
The task of police was made much more difficult if not impossible by the failure to give a precise location, indeed to give a wrong location.
clearly the sort of weapon we believe was used in this attack is known to be in the hands of certain groups. They will be uppermost in our minds.
This is a completely reckless terrorist attack.
This is another vicious atrocity with terrorist impact, ... The device has similarities to the device that exploded in Brixton with terrible consequences last Saturday.
