Britain's governing Conservative Party and the main opposition Labour said they would resume local campaigning on Thursday for the June 8 general election, after suspending efforts due to Monday's terror attack.

Both the Conservatives and Labour will then resume national campaigning with Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Friday, officials said.

"The British people are united in their resolve that terror will not prevail. It will not prevent us going about our daily lives or derail our democratic process," Corbyn said in a statement.

"Resuming democratic debate and campaigning is an essential mark of the country's determination to defend our democracy and the unity that the terrorist have sought to attack," he said.

A Conservative Party spokesman told AFP on Wednesday: (May 24) "We will resume local campaigning tomorrow ... and national campaigning on Friday".
