Britain's tourism and hospitality officials are expressing concern over the effect of recent terror attacks in the United Kingdom, though questions remain as to the size of any potential slump in visitors.

Top representatives convened as the Tourism Industry Emergency Response Group on Monday following Saturday's London attack, the third in three months, which killed eight and injured 48. The body of the eighth victim was found on Wednesday, police said.

Xu Xiaolei, a spokesman for China Youth Travel Service, said only a few Chinese clients had canceled or changed plans, but he expects a future reduction. Chinese people made 260,000 visits to the UK in 2016.
