SIR JOHN REDWOOD says it is difficult to find consoling words for the families of those killed in yesterday’s terrorist attack in Reading. 

Three people were killed and a number of others injured in the incident which took place just before 7pm in Forbury Gardens. 

Police have arrested a 25-year-old Reading man on suspicion of murder and he remains in custody at this time.

Writing a message of condolence on his blog, the Wokingham MP also took time to thank the emergency services for their work. 

Sir John wrote: “I send my condolences to the families of the three people murdered yesterday evening in a series of senseless stabbings.

“It is difficult to find words to console in such a dreadful circumstance. 

“I am glad many others evaded the planned mass slaughter and grateful to the emergency services for their interventions.”
