London witnessed a terrorist attack on Wednesday and after a dramatic show of police and forces across the London, the mayor said while insisting the English capital remains “the safest global city in the world.”

Mayor Sadiq Khan was of the view that”We’re doing all that we can to keep visitors safe. We’re doing all that we can keep our city safe.”

The mayor also praised  the officer killed in Wednesday attack, which left two others dead and at least 40 injured.

He said “One of the reasons I can say London is the safest global city in the world and one of the safest cities in the world is because there are literally tens of thousands of Keith Palmers keeping our cities safe, working with members of the public who provide intelligence and information, working with our security services.”

“One of the reasons why fewer people were killed, fewer people were injured is because of the bravery of our police service, the bravery of our emergency services and because we’ve practiced and prepared for events such as this,” Khan stated.
