"So far, we have received twenty patients – all adults – eight of whom are female and twelve male. Three of the patients were critically injured, eleven had minor injuries and six major injuries. Three have gone to theatres. Many of our specialist medical and nursing staff are on hand to care for patients as they arrive. We are also freeing up beds within the hospitals to ensure that we are prepared for further casualties.
"Patients are being treated for smoke inhalation, burns and serious limb and chest injuries."
"The scenes that are being broadcast are a clear image of the pain and shock of those caught up in the events.
"I join others in utterly condemning those who commit acts of terrorism under any circumstances.
"At this time our prayers must also be offered to those working in the emergency services that are working to help those who have been hurt."
