James Corden spent some time on Wednesday’s Late Late Show to pay tribute to the victims of the tragic London terrorist attack that happened earlier in the day. 

“There was a terror attack today in my hometown, the city of London in Westminster,” Corden began. “While we’re filming this, it’s still unknown what the motives were. What we do know at this point is that people have lost their lives and many, many more have been injured.”

Sending his thoughts to everyone who was affected, Corden continued by saying that he knows a lot of people from Britain watch his show and also work on the late-night show.

An assailant plowed a car through one of London’s most recognizable streets, hitting dozens of pedestrians before crashing into the gate outside the Palace of Westminster. The attacker then got out and fatally stabbed a police officer. Five people died and at least 40 were injured, according to the BBC.

“London is a diverse and proud and brilliant city,” Corden continued, “and one thing is for sure: If this act of terrorism was supposed to divide the people of London, I know for a fact that all something like this does is bring them closer together as one. Tonight, we send our heartfelt thoughts to everybody in Britain. Stay safe.”
