'March against terror and hate' gets underway in Brussels

A march against terror is taking place in Brussels today, as thousands of people join together in a show of solidarity for the victims of the recent terror attacks in the city.

An estimated 15,000 people, including victims' families are set to join the march as it continues to make its way through the city this afternoon as those who died in the Brussels attacks last month are remembered.

The march began at Brussels North Station at 2pm and will end at the Fontainas square, where speeches will be delivered by members of victims’ families and staff who were there at the time of the co-ordinated attacks on the city's airport and metro.

It was originally scheduled to take place at the end of last month but was postponed amid continued security fears.
