The membership of LSE’s Mannheim Centre for Criminology has been devastated to learn of the tragic death of two young members of the community of Cambridge University’s Institute of Criminology, Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt.

We join our Cambridge colleagues and friends in mourning those who lost their lives and hoping that the injured will have a speedy and full recovery. Our thoughts of comfort and our heartfelt sympathy are with all their families and friends, and everyone else affected by the incident. Like so many others, we too wish to express our admiration for those who bravely risked their own lives to bring the attack to a halt and save the lives of others.

We would also like to acknowledge the wonderful work undertaken by the Learning Together programme that was being celebrated on Friday 29th November 2019.  In the light of these awful events, its aims of promoting social justice and reducing the harms of both crime and criminalisation seem all the more important.

This is a moment of great sorrow for all of us.
