The other parties in government have yet to released a statement as to their intent, however it is believed they will follow suit as they did in the wake of the Manchester attacks. This comes just four days before the general election in the UK, which may see a new Prime minister taking over from Teresa May.

The Joint Terrorist Analysis Center (JTAC) have kept the threat levels for terrorism from international threats to Severe, which they have been at since manchester bombing incident 2 weeks ago.

This attack marks 3rd in 3 months in the UK.

The first attack came on the 22nd of March on westminster bridge, which left five people dead, in an eerily similar attack to tonight, as after the 52 year old briton Khalid Masood drove his car onto the pavement on the bridge he then left his car and proceeded with a knife towards westminster. the second attack would come in Manchester just two months later on 22nd May when a 22 year old British Muslim called Salman Ramadan Abedi, would detonate a shrapnel ladened explosive device, killing himself and 22 others, and injuring 116 people, at an #Ariana Grande concert.

Ariana Grande is supposed to be attending a concert tonight (one love) in honour of those victims of the Manchester Bombing, with a host of other celebrities such as Robbie Williams, Usher, Coldplay, Take That and Justin Beiber. showing up as well. This event is said to still be going ahead as planned.

Police are asking people to stay away from the affected areas, however they do say they believe all the people involved have been caught, however they are still conducting inquiries, and a full investigation to ascertain if anyone else is involved or had knowledge of the impending attacks. The Police and MI5 have both set up requests for pictures from the incident, and hotlines for those with families involved.

As more information is released, we expect more to become clearer from this event.
