Minute's silences in tribute to those killed in the London Bridge terror attack have taken place across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire today.

Seven people died during an eight-minute rampage when three knifemen ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge using a van and went on to stab people in Borough Market on Saturday night.

The attackers, wearing fake suicide vests, were shot dead by police.It is thought that 36 people remain in London hospitals, with 18 in critical care.

Silences took place across the region at 11am and books of condolence have been opened at several council buildings, at which flags are at half mast, as public authorities Stand With London.

It follows a series of vigils held across the region last night.

Here are the details for some of the minute's silences that took place today at 11am:

  • York Minster, York

  • Peace Gardens, Sheffield

  • Centenary Square, Bradford

  • Halifax Town Hall, Halifax

  • Lincolnshire Police Headquarters, Lincoln

  • West Yorkshire Police Headquarters, Wakefield

In this moment we will remember those who died, those who were injured and those who grieve. We will remember the police and the emergency services for their courage, selflessness and professionalism in the face of such senseless violence.
