Schools near Rendlesham Road in Enfield were put into “lockdown” to keep the children safely indoors.

Local councillors for North Bushey expressed deep shock and sadness over the incident.

Labour’s Home Secretary Yvette Cooper posted a statement on X “The loss of three women’s lives in Bushey last night is truly shocking. My thoughts are with the family & friends of those who have been killed & with the community.

I am being kept fully updated. I urge people to support Herts Police with any information about this case.”

According to the Home Office, there were fewer than 10 killings involving the ancient bolt-firing devices between 2011 and 2021

Detective Superintendent Rob Hall from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit said: “This is an incredibly difficult incident for the victims’ family and we would ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened.

“Whilst we are still in the early stages of this investigation, we are actively seeking Kyle Clifford who we believe could be in the areas of Hertfordshire or North London.

“Given the serious nature of the incident, I would ask anyone who knows where he is to contact police immediately.

“If you believe you see him, please do not approach him and dial 999 straight away. He may still be in possession of a weapon.”
