Gathering in Leicester for victims of Paris shootings

A gathering will be held at Leicester's Clock Tower this afternoon to remember victims of terrorist attacks in France earlier this week.

17 people died in two separate attacks, on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, and a Jewish supermarket.

"We must stand for our right to free expression or we will lose that right."

– Gush Bhumbra, president of Leicester Secular Society

The gathering will begin at two o'clock - an hour after the start of a march in Paris in which up to a million people are expected to take part, and which will be attended by Prime Minister David Cameron and many other world leaders.
