Crowds gathered in Leeds city centre to pause for a sombre silence in memory of those affected by the terror attacks in London at the weekend.

Lord Mayor of Leeds, Coun Jane Dowson, led the minute’s silence at Victoria Gardens, on The Headrow, at 11am in tribute to victims and their families.

Coun Dowson, flanked by the council’s chief executive Tom Riordan and council leader Judith Blake, gave a speech before the silence.

She told crowds that she wanted to offer “support, sympathy and condolences” to those affected in London, on behalf of the city of Leeds.
