EVENTS IN MANCHESTER
I know we will all be shocked and saddened by the awful events unfolding in Manchester with reports of 22 dead and 59 injured, including children. The police believe this is a terrorist attack.
There are no words to express how evil the perpetrators of such acts are and there is no way to make sense of such barbaric events.
Today and in the coming weeks and months we will all be thinking of and praying for those affected and the families and friends of the dead and injured.
The police investigation is ongoing.
There is to be no political campaigning today, as a mark of respect for all those who have lost their lives and all those injured.
