The loss of a family member or friend in such a way is an unimaginably distressing experience as those of us who have experienced a similar tragedy know. We extend our support and thoughts to all those who were injured. We cannot speak highly enough regarding the skill and professionalism of all the rescue services.We know that a number of our fellows and members have been treating those injured and are gratified by the contribution they are making.

We are proud to be the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of this city whose inhabitants have once again had to deal at close hand with tragedy and have responded spontaneously and in such a supportive and compassionate way for their fellow citizens.
