Erewash MP Jessica Lee has branded the death of a soldier in London as a ‘vile attack’.

The suspected terror attack in Woolwich yesterday saw the man butchered with a machete. A man with blood covered hand was then filmed by onlookers. Police later shot and wounded two suspects.

Jessica Lee told the Advertiser: “I think everyone is just horrified that this happened in broad daylight when people where going about their business. The conduct of the suspects was graphic and vile.

“My thought go out to the family and friends of the victim.”

She added that anyone with families in the armed forced should be extra vigilant, and called the incident ‘unsettling’ and a ‘vile attack’, adding that it would be a priority for the Government to find out what was at the root of it.

National reports state that a murder inquiry is being led by the Counter Terrorism Command unit of the Metropolitan Police. Prime Minister David Cameron said the UK would “never buckle” in the face of terror attacks.
