People in Luton have been paying their respects to the victims of the Westminster terror attacks by signing a book of condolence at the Town Hall.

The Borough Council opened the book to give people a chance to write messages of support to the families of those who lost their lives or were injured in the terrible events on Wednesday afternoon.

The flag above the Town Hall also flew at half-mast today, and the leader of the Council Hazel Simmons says that everyone in the town is still coming to terms with what happened.

All our thoughts are with the people that have been killed and injured.

The people of Luton always unite around these things. All of the communities in Luton will say that this is an abhorrent act of absolutely senseless killing.

This is a special book and I would encourage everyone to come and sign it.

– Cllr Hazel Simmons, Leader of Luton Borough Council,

Anyone who wishes to sign the book can do so by heading to the Town Hall reception area where it will be on display until further notice.
