And there we were, a room in the office filled to the brim with people watching BBC News 24.
Brits, Europeans, Asians, Americans, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Christians, Atheists. United by the horror.
Mayor Ken says:
"London has been the target of a cowardly terrorist attack. Londoners have responded calmly and courageously.
"I commend the professionalism, courage of the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London staff, the Ambulance, Fire and other emergency services.
"Innocent people going from all of London's communities have been targeted by this indiscriminate attack. I urge Londoners from all of this city's diverse communities and faiths to support one another and stand together against terrorism."
“It is important, however, that those engaged in terrorism realise that our determination to defend our values and our way of life is greater than their determination to cause death and destruction to innocent people in a desire impose extremism on the world.
“Whatever they do it is our determination that they will never succeed in destroying what we hold dearin this country and in other civilised nations throughout the world.”
