Sadiq Khan said:
“The attack on Brussels today is sickening and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected.
“This is not just an attack on the people of Brussels – it is an attack on our shared way of life.
“These hideous crimes were committed by evil people in the name of a grotesque and perverse ideology.
“Our first priority must be to ensure that we do everything necessary to keep Londoners safe.”
