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.
