Dr Gareth Davies, Medical Director of the London’s Air Ambulance charity and Consultant at Barts Health NHS Trust said:

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends, families and colleagues of those who lost their lives or were injured at the tragic incident in Westminster yesterday.  

"Our team worked alongside other emergency services, including the London Ambulance Service, the Metropolitan Police and the London Fire Brigade, to assess and treat multiple casualties. 

"I would like to thank all of our team who were involved, whether directly or indirectly, and commend the London Ambulance Service for their management of a highly complicated scene.

"We would also like to thank the members of the public and medical professionals who showed courage and strength by rallying together to help in what must have been the most frightening ordeal. 

"We have been blown away by the generosity of Londoners who have, in less than 24 hours, donated £10,000 to the London’s Air Ambulance charity.  Thank you. 

"We are a service for Londoners, funded by Londoners.  London is a great city and we all stand together, especially in difficult times."
