Belfast and Derry vigils in solidarity with Manchester

Vigils have been held across the UK, including in Northern Ireland, after the Manchester terror attack.

People gathered outside City Hall in Belfast on Tuesday afternoon in a show of silent solidarity, while another event was held in Londonderry.

Some of those at the Belfast vigil were from Manchester and their emotions were raw.

One woman said: “I’m angry and upset because they’ve targeted kids, it’s not good anyway but to attack kids is just unthinkable and unfair.”

Security was tightened at the SSE Arena in Belfast in response to the attack, as a show by celebrity scientist Brian Cox took place.

City Hall was later lit up in the colours of the Union Flag.
