Archbishop hails compassion of communities in wake of terrorism and Grenfell

From Premier-

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has used his new year message to praise the "depth of compassion" shown by communities responding to terrorism and tragedy.

The Anglican leader said the 2017 terrorist atrocities in London and Manchester and the Grenfell Tower disaster had been met with heroism from the emergency services.

But he also used his message to highlight the suffering of people "struggling to find work or relying on food banks" whose plight did not make national headlines.

The Archbishop used his message, being broadcast on the BBC, to say that as well as the attacks in London and Manchester, "all over the world we witnessed the horror and devastation caused by terrorism".

There had also been other "terrible tragedies", he said, adding that he visited Grenfell Tower when the west London block was still burning and "I remember the desperation and sorrow".
