Torbay will remember those who lost their lives and all others affected by the attacks in London on Saturday night with a minute silence outside the Town Hall. The silence will be marked at all government buildings across the UK on Tuesday 6 June 2017 at 11am.

Torbay’s elected Mayor, Gordon Oliver, said: “Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the terrible attack in London. I hope those who have lost loved ones, been injured or witnessed the events on Saturday night will find strength at this difficult time.

“I would also like to offer our respect and appreciation to the emergency services and other agencies in London who rushed to the aid of those in need. Torbay Council will continue to work closely with our partners across South Devon to ensure that we are not only safe but would be able to respond effectively should the need arise.

“The Union Flag is flying at half-mast at Torquay Town Hall as a mark of respect and a book of condolence will be available in the Town Hall reception area from tomorrow. Anyone who would like to take part in the minute silence is warmly invited to Torquay Town Hall to pay their respects and show their support for those affected by this latest attack.”
