"We are deeply saddened by the extensive loss of life and injury and on behalf of the city of Brighton & Hove, we reach out to all those around the world to show sympathy and support in the face of unacceptable violence."

"As well as our neighbours in France, we also stand in unity with all nations where recent terror attacks have taken place."
