Security forces are advising organisers of the FA Cup, the rugby premiership final, the Chelsea Flower show and “people may well see military personnel at some of these events”, the Labour Mayor said in a BBC interview.
“There is no reason to be alarmed” he said “our emergency services prepare day in, day out for these situations”.

“Our thoughts are with the young people and children who were victims of this cowardly and barbaric attack. London stands in solidarity with the people of Manchester.”
