POA issues statement after death of Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones

The POA has released a statement paying tribute to Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones, who were murdered on Friday night in London.

POA general secretary Steve Gillan General said: “I have seen social media comments namely from politicians of all parties doing the blame game and finger-pointing over this tragedy. As always, the POA stand ready to offer a balanced view and will do so at the appropriate time.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of this atrocity and outrage. I pay tribute to both Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones who have tragically and sadly lost their lives.

“The POA also hopes the injured make a full and speedy recovery and we pay tribute to the emergency services and all members of the public who intervened to stop this cowardly attack.”
