Eastbourne has come together for a vigil for Manchester.
Following last night’s (22 May) suicide bombing at a pop concert at Manchester Arena, a minute’s silence was held at the start of a public meeting at Town Hall to discuss the environment and ended with a candle-lit vigil on the steps to the building.
22 people were killed during the terror attack, including an 8-year-old girl. Dozens more were left injured.
Tonight, the Prime Minister has announced the UK’s terror threat level has increased from severe to critical, meaning a further attack may be imminent. Earlier today, Sussex Police reassured the public by saying there is no evidence to suggest any attack is likely here.
