Council pays respects to victims of Westminster attack
Flags at Telford & Wrekin Council’s head office at Addenbrooke House in Telford Town Centre have been lowered to half mast in remembrance and respect for the victims of the attack in Westminster yesterday.
The Council along with national Government departments is participating in a minute’s silence at 9:33am this morning.
Deputy leader Cllr Richard Overton said: “The thoughts and prayers of everyone connected with the Council are with the victims of yesterday’s attack in central London and their families.
“We cannot praise highly enough the very professional and swift response of police and emergency services to the events.
“Our thoughts in particular are with the family of PC Keith Palmer, who gave his life in the course of his duty.
“It is very important that we ensure we continue with our business as normal and we show that terrorism can never win.”
