Gill Furniss, Labour’s candidate for the Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough by-election, reacting to the attacks in Brussels, said:
“These are truly shocking events and my heart goes out to the victims and all their families and friends.
“My thoughts are with the emergency services and all those working hard to keep citizens safe both here and in Belgium.
“We must refuse to allow these terrorists to draw us into a cycle of violence and hatred – we must protect our security and liberty.
“We will not allow those who seek to divide us to succeed."
