Prince Charles: Described killings as ‘brutally tragic’

He described the killings as "brutally tragic" and asked for his condolences and those of his wife the Duchess of Cornwall to be passed on to the families whose lives had been "torn apart".

The heir to the throne's message was sent this morning to the Lord Lieutenant of Cumbria.

The message read: "My wife and I were utterly horrified to learn of the dreadful events which took place in Cumbria yesterday and can well imagine the devastating effect on the county.

"We would be so grateful if you could somehow convey our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to the poor families whose lives have been so torn apart by such brutally tragic circumstances.

"It is scarcely bearable that Cumbria has had to endure this renewed suffering, particularly after last November's floods and the recent coach accident.

"Our hearts go out to Cumbria."
