Country falls silent to remember victims of Tunisia massacre

One week on from the terror attack in Tunisia, the nation today remembered those who lost their lives in the atrocity. Thirty British tourists were among the 38 holidaymakers who were gunned down on a beach in the resort of Sousse.

At 12 noon towns and cities fell silent, as thousands of people paid their respects. Six of the victims were from our region and today their relatives, their friends and their colleagues joined the silent tribute.

It came on the day the bodies of two more victims from or region were flown back to Britain.
