“Our message to ISIS and their supporters is clear: You have to understand that we are here for you,” Prime Minister Theresa May said in a statement.
“The security forces are determined to get you out of the arena safely.”
She added: “And the police will do all in their power to ensure that you are treated fairly and with dignity by the law.”
She said it was the right thing to do to help counter Islamic State.

“We will continue to work with the people of Britain to secure the country and secure our security, including through security co-operation and intelligence sharing,” she added.
She urged people to remain calm and not to take action, despite the increased police presence.
May has previously said she would not rule out military action in response to the attack if necessary.
