Many of you will have heard the terrible news last night and watched in shock, as we did, at the tragic and exceptionally sad events that unfolded throughout the evening.
There has been much speculation but what is confirmed is that our community and city has been deeply affected by this incident.
John Clark, CEO for PCH, said: “On behalf of everyone at PCH, our heartfelt sympathies and thoughts go out to the families and friends of all those who have lost loved ones.
Our thanks go out to the emergency services who were there in our darkest hours and we wish those who were injured a speedy recovery.
If there’s one thing we know about Plymouth people, it’s our ability to pull together to support each other and get through these terribly sad times.”
If you have been affected by this incident, please call the National Victim Support helpline on 08 08 16 89 111.
