Messages of support

Cllr Warren Morgan, leader of Brighton & Hove City Council

“This was an horrific tragedy visited on roads that are familiar. Many of us will have friends and family affected or who had a narrow escape.

“Our thoughts in the immediate aftermath and in the long term must go to the bereaved, the injured and the traumatised. Brighton and Hove City Council stands ready to help them, our neighbouring authorities and the emergency services in the hours and weeks ahead."

Cllr Lynda Hyde, Mayor of Brighton & Hove

“As the human impact of the accident begins to emerge I write as a regional colleague to extend the sympathies of the city to our friends. The people of Brighton & Hove, many of whom have been directly affected, stand alongside our neighbours in sympathy. I would like to offer my deepest condolences to those who have lost loved ones or who are still waiting for news.

“I extend utmost thanks and respect to the emergency services and those persons now involved in the investigation; especially those colleagues dealing with the consequences of loss.

“This was a terrible tragedy, the shadow of which is likely to be long and deep.”
