—A Muggle radio broadcast[src]

After the collapse of the Millennium Bridge at the hands of Fenrir Greyback and a group of Death Eaters, the Mayor urged Londoners to remain calm, for this was a most unusual event.[1] He also addressed The Guardian, where he described Londoners as having been left "scared, confused and desperate for answers" and pledging to uncover the truth behind the disaster (widely speculated among Muggles to have been caused by a fundamentalist political group).[2]
