A joint response has been issued following recent terror attacks.
“We send our condolences to the family and friends of Carly Lovett and also those affected by Friday’s atrocities.
“We must not let the perpetrators achieve their goal of striking fear into communities and dividing them.
“By being united we are showing that we will defeat the terrorists in their aim to divide us.
“Modern societies should be respectful of all religions and beliefs, showing understanding and solidarity.
“We must continue our opposition to these acts of violence and show that the diversity is something to be celebrated, not targeted.”
