PM: "People across Britain share the shock and grief that is being felt in France"

The Prime Minister David Cameron has written to the French President Nicolas Sarkozy following the murders in Toulouse.

The letter reads:

Dear Nicolas,

I was appalled to learn of the recent shootings that France has suffered, including in Toulouse this morning. People across Britain share the shock and grief that is being felt in France, and my thoughts are with the victims, their friends and their families. I know that France will draw strength and comfort from your resolute leadership at this difficult time. You can count on my every support in confronting these senseless acts of brutality and cowardice.

Yours,

David.
