City MP Iain Stewart has pledged to support anyone in Milton Keynes affected by the “barbaric” terror attack in Tunisia - and is calling on them to get in touch.

Friday’s massacre saw 38 tourists murdered as they holidayed in Sousse by 23-year-old gunman Seifeddine Rezgui.

Today, horrified Mr Stewart said terrorism “must come to an end”.

He said: “It was a barbaric act by an individual with a poisoned ideology.

“Too often over the past few years we have seen terrorist attacks around the world destroying families and livelihoods. “It must come to an end and I echo the Prime Minister’s comment that we are in a ‘generational struggle’ between a minority of extremists, who want hatred to flourish and the rest of us who want freedom to prosper.”

Yesterday, Prime Minister David Cameron announced a minute’s silence for the victims of the attack will be held at noon on Friday.

Mr Stewart added: “It was an important move by the PM to announce a one minute silence on Friday to remember those who passed away.

“Anyone in Milton Keynes who has been affected by the events in Tunisia please don’t hesitate to get in touch with myself or Mark Lancaster MP and we will do all we can to assist.”
