May continued: "We are very clear that the terrorists will not win. We will be united in working tighter in working together to defeat them."

Foreign Minister Tobias Ellwood also commented on the attacks, describing it to Sky News as the "Most significant attack on the British people" since the July 7 attacks in 2005, when 52 people were killed by four suicide bombers.

The Foreign Office has since updated its travel advice and warns that further terrorist attacks in Tunisia are possible.
