Those wishing to show solidarity with Manchester following the terror attack will have the opportunity to do so this evening as vigils are held in Norwich.
Students from the University of East Anglia (UEA) have arranged a vigil to show support for those who lost their lives on Monday.
The event will take place from 5pm on Wednesday, May 24 in The Square at UEA.
Attendees are invited to say a few words and share in a moment of silence.
