Rotherham to fall silent in memory of London terror attack victims
Crowds gathered outside Rotherham Town Hall for a minute's silence following the Manchester terror attack a fortnight ago

ROTHERHAM will join the rest of the country in falling silent tomorrow (Tuesday) in memory of those killed in the London terror attack.

Councillors and officers will hold a minute’s silence outside Rotherham Town Hall and Riverside House at 11am to remember the seven people killed and as a mark of respect to the dozens injured after the attack at London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night.

Police said the attack began at around 10pm on Saturday, when a white Renault van hired by one of the three attackers drove onto London Bridge from the north side.

It was the third terror attack in the UK in three months, following the car and knife attack on Westminster Bridge in March, in which five people were killed, and the Manchester bombing two weeks ago, in which 22 people were killed.
