A tragedy pure and simple
No time for smart statements and point scoring today. Just a quick note of profound sympathy to the families and friends of the victims of yesterdays tragic shootings in Cumbria. Sitting at home in the Lakes during half terms week with the kids playing in the garden as events unfolded the whole thing had a slightly surreal air to it. Coming so soon after the tragic coach crash near Keswick it seems Cumbria is suffering an ill wind at the moment.
Real enough for the poor victims and their loved ones, made all the more painful by the seemingly random and cold blooded nature of massacre. Full marks to Cumbria police and the emergency services for their response to the events and to those people involved on the ground throughout the county. Enough said for today.
Thoughts and prayers to the victims families and friends and all those caught up in this tragic event….
