On Friday 15th March, 50 lives were lost in the tragic mass shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

This is an awful atrocity and I know that not only will the friends and family of the innocent victims be weeping, but so too will every Muslim across the world.

I have written to the Home Office Security Minister, Ben Wallace MP, to find out what Government support is available to help protect our Muslim community in Harlow

We stand in solidarity.
