Following the attack in London which claimed the lives of seven people and left dozens injured, a massive, fast-moving and dynamic investigation has swung into action.

Supt Chris Hillery said there could be people from the county who were caught up in the tragic events in the capital last night, but who may not have yet thought to either inform police that they were a potential witness or had simply relayed their stories direct to the media.

He said: “We would urge people to come forward to help the wider police investigation.
