Hundreds of students have been holding a vigil at the University of Birmingham in memory of the 129 people killed in Friday's terror attacks in Paris.
The memorial was organised by the Guild of Students and took place at Mermaid Square on the university campus in Edgbaston this evening.
There are between 100 and 150 students from France currently studying at the university.
Jack Mably, President at the Guild of Students, said:
"It's incredibly touching to see students out here in their hundreds. Obviously it's a tragic and horrific event that's occurred this weekend and it's clear that people across the world are coming out in support of people who are injured and have fallen victim to the terror attacks."
