Berlin Attack: Sadiq Khan thanks London’s emergency services in Christmas message

The Mayor thanked firefighters, police officers, and the NHS.

“As we look back at the year that has passed, and as the New Year comes into view, let’s look forward with hope and optimism,” he says.

“But it’s also important that we take the time to spare a thought for those who may have lost loved ones this year, or, for whatever reason, may be alone or homeless this Christmas.

“And let’s give thanks to those who are working over Christmas – like our police officers, firefighters, emergency service and NHS staff, who work so hard to help keep us safe and well.

“Not just at this time of year but all year round.

“This is the true spirit of Christmas – and the true spirit of London.”
