"We cannot and must not let terrorists strike fear into the heart of our society and the freedom and liberties we enjoy. The abhorrent and mindless attacks in Spain were designed to do exactly that by targeting popular tourist areas at the height of the summer, so it's vital we stay strong and stand together. 

"Once again, mums, dads, daughters, sons, brothers and sisters will not be returning home to their families and that is simply not acceptable. My deepest condolences to all those who have lost a loved one and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by these horrific acts." 

South Ayrshire Provost, Helen Moonie
