One minute's silence for victims of Grenfell Tower tragedy | Bradford Council

A one minute's silence was held this morning (Monday, 19 June) at 11am in Centenary Square to remember the victims of last week's Grenfell Tower tragedy.

The public were invited to join in remembering all those who have suffered as a result of the terrible fire that engulfed the tower block in west London and yesterday's terrorist incident at Finsbury Park Mosque.

The silence was led by the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Coun Abid Hussain, and the Dean of Bradford Cathedral, the Very Reverend Jerry Lepine.

Flags on City Hall and the Council's area offices are flying at half mast.

The Lord Mayor, the Leader of the Bradford Council, Coun Susan Hinchcliffe, and the Chief Executive, Kersten England, said: "The fire at Grenfell Tower in London was a truly shocking and saddening event and our thoughts are with all those who have been affected.

"We are also remembering and paying our respects to all those affected by the dreadful London Mosque attack last night."
