No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. … Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. - John Donne, 1624

This is a day of shock and deep sadness. Our hearts go out to all those affected by last night's tragic events. Thank you to Southwark's emergency services, who responded with such speed and bravery, and to the countless Southwark residents who offered shelter and support.

Today we are remembering the seven people killed yesterday at London Bridge, the injured and affected. We also remember Abdirahman Mohamed, a boy of 17 who was fatally stabbed on Southampton Way on Friday night.

We will be meeting at 2pm in Camberwell to have a space to talk. Please feel free to join us there.

At 5pm, we will come together to share a moment of silence for the victims in the Peace Garden outside the Imperial War Museum. This is open to all who wish to attend.

If you are concerned about friends, relatives, or anyone else that may have been affected then please contact the Casualty Bureau on 0800 096 1233 or 020 7158 0197. Any images or videos of events can be sent to the Metropolitan Police.
