Sadiq Khan told BuzzFeed News the vigil showed the best of London. The mayor added that it was a way of showing "evil and twisted individuals" that they were not going to be successful.


Home secretary Amber Rudd paid tribute to PC Keith Palmer, one of the victims of the attack, calling him "courageous". Rudd added: "They will not win, and today we showed that by coming together and getting about our normal business. The terrorists will not defeat us, we will defeat them."
