Welshpool will observe a minute’s silence at 11am tomorrow (Thursday) in memory of those who lost their lives in the Manchester bombing on Monday.

The Government this afternoon announced the silence would take place at 11am following the death of 22 people in the suicide attack.

Flags will remain at half-mast on government buildings until the evening of May 25, said a statement released jointly by 10 Downing Street, the Foreign Office and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

The silence will be followed by the resumption of local campaigning by most political parties, with the General Election contest restarting in full on Friday.

Welshpool Town Clerk Robert Robinson said the government was encouraging people to take part and urged the people of Welshpool to convene outside the Town Hall in time for the 11am silence.
