Minute’s silence at 11am on St Ann’s Square for terror attack victims

A minute’s silence will take place in St Ann’s Square in central Manchester at 11am today (Thursday, May 25) for the victims of Manchester Arena terror attack.

It is part of a nationwide silence following Monday’s atrocity which claimed the lives of 22, including many children.

Lord Mayor of Manchester Eddy Newman, Council leader Sir Richard Leese, Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham and Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester Warren Smith will join members of the public in observing the silence.

St Ann’s Square is now the focal point for the floral tributes which members of the public have been leaving since Tuesday.

Meanwhile the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund has raised £2m in just 24 hours as appeals backing the grieving families joined force.
