Hyndburn Community Leaders have issued this statement after the horrific terror attacks in Manchester:

Council Leader, Cllr Miles Parkinson, said; “We are all shocked and extremely saddened at yesterday’s horrific attack in Manchester. Our hearts go out to all the victims and their families and everyone touched by these terrible events. Manchester is right next door, it’s so close to home, we feel Manchester’s loss and pain so keenly and we stand together with them.”

Hyndburn’s Conservative Party Leader, Cllr Tony Dobson, added; “Our deepest condolences and sympathies are with everyone affected by this terrible attack, our thoughts are with them and all the people of Manchester at this sad time.”

Cllr Paul Thompson, Leader of Hyndburn’s UK Independence Group, said; “We’re so saddened and deeply shocked by these terrible events and our thoughts go to those who have lost their lives, to their families and all who are touched by this tragedy.”

Hafiz Abdul Saeed, Head Imam of Raza Masjid Mosque, Grimshaw Street, Accrington said;
“Our deepest condolences go to all in Manchester who have been affected by this terrible attack.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and friends, our hearts go out to them.”

The union flag is flying at half-mast on Accrington Town Hall (see left column). A book of Condolence will open on Thursday in Accrington Town Hall for people to pay their respects and you can also sign Manchester’s Book of Condolence online at http://www.manchester.gov.uk/

A vigil will also take place at 7.30pm on Thursday 25th May at St James Church in Accrington for everyone to show support for those affected by the tragic events in Manchester.
