Metropolitan Police Federation chairman Ken Marsh said: “I can confirm that sadly some of our colleagues were among the injured in the attack last night. I join all UK police colleagues in wishing them a swift recovery.

“First and foremost our thoughts are with the families of those who lost loved ones in the horrific events last night and we wish well to those still injured.
“There can be no doubt that the swift response of our colleagues – both armed and unarmed – saved further lives from being lost.
“There are barely words to describe their bravery – officers who ran towards danger with no thought for their own safety.
“Londoners can rightly be proud of their emergency services today. They are the best of the best and we thank everyone for their praise and kind comments.”
