Statement on the attack in Manchester

“This is truly heart breaking news and my thoughts are with those affected.

“The details are still coming to light but from what we know, this cowardly attack has killed 22 people and injured another 59. This callous and indiscriminate act of violence has again achieved nothing but heartache and pain.

“My thoughts are today with those killed and injured and their families. At times like this, I also think of our emergency services – those people who are at this very moment saving lives, protecting lives and searching to discover the truth and bring to justice those involved.

“As a mark of respect, my campaign to be re-elected in Coventry South will be suspended until further notice.”
