"We've been ready for it," he said of the attack. "We're going to continue with that operation, we're now coming towards the very end of it in any event.

"We're going to work flat out... getting people through as fast as they can still, and we're going to keep going up until the last moment," said the prime minister, shortly after chairing a meeting of the emergency COBR committee.
