Wolverhampton City Council observed the Europe-wide one minute’s silence

The Wolverhampton City council observed the Europe-wide one minute’s silence in memory of those who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks in Paris over this weekend.

The one minute silence took place at 11 am today and the alarm bells at the Civic Centre  rang briefly to mark the start and end of the minute’s silence.

Councillor Phil Bateman said ” I couldn’t get into take part. But I do so very strongly support the decision to mark the horrendous carnage that terrorism wrought on Paris, and the people who were just carrying out their own business. I am sure that the whole of Wednesfield will also give support to this action by our City Council”images French flag
