An installation featuring thousands of ceramic poppies, which were shown outside the Tower of London in 2014, has arrived in Hull.

The Weeping Window display has been erected outside the Maritime Museum, which witnessed the recruitment of men to the Hull Pals in Hull City Hall opposite during the First World War.

It has been taken from the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red exhibition that was created to mark the centenary of the conflict at the London landmark.

It will remain in the city until May 14 as part of Hull's UK City of Culture programme.

Anti-racism campaigners are set to host vigils in Yorkshire in response to the Westminster terror attack on Wednesday.

'Vigils Against Hatred and Division' will take place at venues across the country, including Downing Street, today.

People in Yorkshire are invited to attend vigils outside Hull train station at 4.30pm or at the Leeds Art Gallery at 6.30pm.

They have been organised by the Muslim Engagement and Development Community and Stand Up to Racism.

Our thoughts are with the victims and their families of the tragic attack in Westminster on Wednesday.

We express our shock, distress and solidarity with them at this terrible time.

We can not let these attacks be used by the racists to divide us.
