“We are devastated by the news from Boston yesterday when death and destruction struck people celebrating a wonderful sporting occasion, having a day of relaxation and enjoyment....
"...Our prayers, at Leicester Cathedral, are with all those injured, those who are bereaved, with the traumatised, those who have died and those who have the responsibility for bringing care and healing to all those affected...."
"....We also pray that those responsible for this outrage will be brought to justice...."
Canon Barry Naylor, Acting Dean of Leicester
