Hundreds of people attended a minute’s silence to pay their respects to everyone affected by the attack in Manchester.

People gathered outside both Blackburn Town Hall and Darwen Town Hall to commemorate the people – many of them children – who lost their lives in the atrocity.

The attack at an Ariana Grande concert on Monday, May 22, at Manchester Arena, killed 22 people and saw a further 59 injured.

A book of condolence has been opened at Blackburn Cathedral for members of the public to write in and sign.
