Campaigning suspended as world leaders pay respects

  • Video report by ITV News Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen

Leaders of political parties did not hesitate to suspend General Election campaigning in the wake of the terror attack in Manchester.

Instead, from politicians at home and abroad, there were messages of support for the dead, the grieving and the city of Manchester.

US President Donald Trump denounced those responsible for the atrocity as "evil losers" and pledged America's "absolute solidarity" with the people of the United Kingdom.

Campaigning for the 8 June vote will remain suspended for a second day on Wednesday.
