Cllr Hazel Simmons, Leader of Luton Borough Council, said: “We stand in solidarity with the people of France following this horrific, cowardly and utterly despicable attack on innocent families. It’s heart-breaking that so many lives have been completely devastated by this. We are disgusted by what has happened which reinforces our need to speak out against hate, division and negativity. We continue to be proud of the hard work and commitment within our own communities who are endeavouring to live and work together in peace and harmony.”

The attack killed at least 84 people, including around a dozen children, when a terrorist deliberately drove a truck through crowds celebrating Bastille Day in the French city.
