In the wake of the attack in Woolwich, Ealing Southall MP, Virendra Sharma, has condemned the actions of the attackers and of all forms of extremism.

He has called for unity and an end to some of the anti-Islamic rhetoric which has surfaced following the attack.

Mr Sharma said:

''I am deeply saddened by the shocking attack in Woolwich. I wish to send my sympathies to the family of the victim who bravely served this country.

''These attackers are not in any way representative of the Islamic faith and it is wrong for anyone to engage in anti-Islamic rhetoric.

''The intent of this act was to stir up hatred and fear and it is distressing to see certain groups using this attack as an excuse to stigmatise and divide. We should all unite together to condemn this attack and any form of extremism.''
