Thank you to everyone sending me messages at the moment, it’s unbelievably kind of you to ask after me.
I was on my way to vote and passing through Portcullis House when I suddenly heard the noise, shouting, and then security doors open to allow the public to rush in to find safety.
A group of us came straight back to the office I share with Wes Streeting (MP for Ilford North), and that’s where I am now as the building is in lockdown.
Ever since I became an MP I’ve always been very aware of the women and men in front of the building I work in, putting themselves in harms way to keep people like me safe. It makes me feel incredibly humble and words cannot describe my gratitude.
My job right now is to sit quietly in my office and allow these brave officers to do their job. Sitting as I am right now so close to where terror is unfolding, my heart is aching for those outside who are suffering. Yours, Peter
