West Norfolk mayor Carol Bower will host the vigil at Tower Gardens, St James Street, on Friday, June 2, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.

Mrs Bower and other community and religious leaders are due to speak at the vigil.

The vigil will be multi-denominational and the public are encouraged to attend to voice West Norfolk's sorrow at the atrocity which took the lives of 22 people.

Mrs Bower said: 'I feel that it is paramount that we come together to express solidarity in the wake of last Monday's senseless and atrocious attack in Manchester.

'We have all been shocked by what happened and it is important that people know they are not alone in feeling sorrow.

'This will be an opportunity to show the families affected by this awful event, that our thoughts are with them.'
