Crowds in Exmouth joined the Bishop of Crediton in a minute’s silence on Thursday to remember those killed and injured in Monday’s Manchester terrorist attack.

Bishop Sarah, who had been touring Exmouth, praying on the streets, listening to the concerns of the public and meeting school children, was joined at The Strand war memorial by those wishing to pay their respects to the 22 victims who were killed in the Manchester concert bombing on Monday evening.

The minute’s silence was held across the UK; schools, businesses and individuals stopped to reflect at 11am, remembering the men, women and children killed when a suicide bomber struck at Manchester Arena shortly after an Ariana Grande concert had ended.
