A minute’s silence will be held in Lincoln today to remember those who died and were injured in Monday’s terror attack in Manchester.

The whole of the UK will come to a standstill at 11am today to pay tribute to those affected.

Some 22 people, including an eight-year-old girl, have died and around 120 people are suffering injuries.

Organisations and locations across Lincoln will observe the silence this morning and flags remain at half mast at a number of city landmarks.

Often, crowds will choose to gather at reflective locations in the city when moments of silence are held, such as the Lincoln War Memorial on High Street.

The UK’s threat level has been raised to ‘critical’ for the first time in 10 years, with thousands of armed officers on patrol in the streets around the country in preparation of any further attacks.

Pairs of armed police officers are now patrolling Lincoln City Centre to reassure those living and visiting the area.
