Rotherham pays tribute in wake of Paris terror attacks

ROTHERHAM folk have been paying tribute this week to the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks.

Rotherham Minster held a minute’s silence on Monday, led by Rev Canon David Bliss, for the 129 people killed in the attacks last Friday night, while the Tricolore flag flew at half-mast over Rotherham Town Hall.

Council leader Chris Read, who tweeted a photo of the flagpole, said it was "a gesture of our solidarity with the French people".
