Watch: Islands fall silent to mark Paris attack

People across the Channel Islands fell silent today to remember the 12 people killed in yesterday's Paris shootings.

As police there hunt those responsible for the massacre at the headquarters of a satirical news magazine, here books of condolence were opened, flags flew at half mast, and the governments of Jersey and Guernsey sent official messages of sympathy to France.

Tonight in St Helier's Royal Square, a vigil is being held as a mark of respect for those who died.

Tamsin Eames reflects on the events in which the islands have showed their solidarity.
