James Corden has sent a poignant message to his hometown of London following the shocking terror attack that took place yesterday.
A terror attack in Westminster on Wednesday saw five people lose their lives, including a policeman and the attacker, as well as many more injured.
In the aftermath of the incident, presenter James Corden sent a message of support from LA to his fellow Londoners. The presenter dedicated the introduction of his Late Late Show to those affected, admitting he feels “a really long, long way from home”.
He said: “I don’t know if anybody saw the news today but there was a terror attack today in my hometown, the city of London, in Westminster.
“While we’re filming this, it’s still unknown what the motives were.
“What we do know at this point is that people have lost their lives and many, many more have been injured.
“And I know a lot of people in Britain watch this show. There’s a lot of people from Britain who work on this show, and of course, our thoughts go out to everyone who’s been affected by this.
“And it’s funny watching the news today, I felt a really long long way from home. and it’s funny when something like that happens in your hometown, you don’t have a feeling of being glad that you’re so far away.
“What you feel is that you wish you could be there with loved ones to stand alongside them.
“London is a diverse and proud and brilliant city, and one thing is for sure: If this act of terrorism was supposed to divide the people of London, I know for a fact that all something like this does is bring them closer together as one.
“Tonight we send our heartfelt thoughts to everybody in Britain. Stay safe everybody, please.”
