The horrible news coming out of Manchester will shake every family here in Wednesfield North, as it will shake and shatter families in Manchester and World wide.
I know my constituents here in Wednesfield North in Wolverhampton, will want to join in with me and my fellow Councillors Mary and Rita, as we offer our deepest sympathy and condolences to all those individuals and bright lights of this generation who have had their life snuffed out by this diabolical act of terrorism.
Manchester will grieve for them as will every community in the UK and further. But terrorism will not destroy Manchester, nor will its actions blunt the resolve and the determination to see our laws upheld, and our life styles continue.
We must all stand strong and continue our every day lives, help the police and the front line services do their job, and stand full square with Manchester on this sad and disastrous day.
