Norwich has shown its solidarity with the people of Brussels by lighting City Hall with the colours of the Belgian flag.
The tribute was similar to one in November, when the building was lit in the red, white and blue of the French Tricolore following the Paris attacks that killed 130 people.
Brenda Arthur, Lord Mayor of Norwich, said: 'In the same way that it was lit up with the colours of France when there was the disaster in Paris, I think it is important we show our solidarity and sympathy.
'Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Brussels.
'I think it's really important that we do stand shoulder to shoulder with people who at this time are experiencing great tragedy.'

It joins other monuments around the world which have made similar tributes, include the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
