  8. Spalding Shootings: Local MP, John Hayes, issues statement

    Alex Rhodes

    BBC Lincolnshire Live

    "The whole of our community has been shocked by the unimaginable events which happened in Spalding on Tuesday. This tragedy was dealt with by our local police force with speed and care -several officers were on the scene within moments- and the ambulance service, too, responded rapidly.

    Now is the time for the whole community to come together – in sorrow, but with fortitude. Knowing the people of Spalding and South Holland so well, I am certain that we will all rise to that challenge.

    We do not want nor welcome inflammatory or spiteful remarks from those outside our area who seem more interested in fuelling hatred and despair than in grieving and healing, and I hope we won’t see a repetition of that kind of irresponsibility."

    These designs are known as "Daisy Wheels" and are often found on the walls of religious buildings.
