A book of condolence has been opened at Manchester Town Hall in solidarity with the city of New York, following last night’s terror attack.
An online version of the book will also be available at www.manchester.gov.uk, for those who wish to share their message, but cannot attend the Town Hall in person.
The Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Eddy Newman, is writing to the Mayor of New York to express the city’s sympathy and support.
Manchester Town Hall will be lit up in the colours of the Stars and Stripes - red, white and blue - from 8pm tonight.
The Leader of Manchester City Council, Sir Richard Leese, said:
Our thoughts and sympathies are with all of those affected by this atrocity. We stand with New York and against those who want to cause division through sickening actions of this kind.
"We know from recent experience how devastating this sort of attack is, but also how important international solidarity, community spirit and a determination not to give in to terror are in dealing with its aftermath.”
