Please can any online articles be amended with this statement used instead of the version issued yesterday. Many thanks.
“I have had some correspondence from local people who are concerned that the murder that happened near Waltham Abbey yesterday had a connection with terrorism.
"Essex Police are working hard to investigate the matter.
"I do not know anything about the victim or the circumstances of the crime. I would, however, like to reassure people that there does not seem to be any terrorist involvement.
"Recent terrorist activities in Paris and around the world are, of course, worrying but it is important that people stay calm and do not jump to conclusions.”
