Statement on Barcelona and Cambrils terror attacks

Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council said: "The terrorist attacks that took place in Barcelona and Cambrils yesterday were truly shocking. Our thoughts and sympathy are with those affected by these horrific events. 

"It is sickening that these evil and cowardly acts have been perpetrated on the innocent going about their normal lives.  We can only defeat this senseless terror by rejecting hatred and bigotry and celebrating the strength of our diversity.  

“Our thoughts are with the Spanish people and everyone who has been affected.”

"The council is flying the Union flag at half-mast over Ealing Town Hall as a sign of our respect."
