Minute's silence at Leeds rail station

The minute's silence at Leeds rail station was all the more poignant as victim Christopher Bell worked there in the ticket office - described by Northern Rail as a 'much loved and highly valued colleague who will be greatly missed'.

Mr Bell was killed along with his wife Sharon, a care worker, in the shooting last Friday.
