London mayor Sadiq Khan has called for a security review of the capital after yesterday’s truck attack in Nice that killed over 80 people and left several injured.

Khan said: “My deepest sympathies are with the people of Nice this morning – particularly with those who are injured, and the families and friends of those who were killed.

“This was a horrific and unspeakable act of terror on a day of celebration and hope for the French people, who have suffered so much pain in recent times.

“Londoners today stand united with Nice and all of France in our grief.”

Khan said he would do everything to keep London safe and is working with the Metropolitan Police to take required steps to safeguard the capital.

He added: “We are also united in our determination to root out and defeat the sick and evil individuals who have tried to divide us with this cowardly act of terror.

“They will not win. Not in France. Not in London. Not anywhere. We will defeat their poisonous and twisted ideology.”
