Statement update 10 August 2011

A spokesperson for London & Partners said:
"We continue to work closely with the tourism industry to understand the effects of the past few days. The majority of London attractions have remained open and the capital has continued to host major events such as the Badminton World Championships which have all demonstrated the capital’s resilience.”

A spokesperson for the Mayor of London, said:
“London has a proud history of resilience as well as hospitality and the city remains open for business. It is important to note that recent incidents have occurred away from the capital's major visitor attractions, which continue to operate as normal and attract thousands of people from across the world. The UK's capital has a very strong reputation internationally and remains one of the greatest cities to live, work, visit and invest in. London is also one of the safest cities and the Mayor himself has made it clear that Londoners can and will recover from what has happened over the past few days."
