Warrington Borough Council Leader, Cllr Terry O’Neill, made the following statement today:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have been tragically affected by this evil act of terrorism.
“In the North West, we are one community, and we stand together with our friends and neighbours in Manchester. We will support you in any way we can.
“One objective of terrorists is to set community against community – we cannot let that happen, and the way forward is solidarity and hope.
“Warrington Town Hall’s flag will be at half mast for the rest of the week and we will be working closely with the people of the borough and the police to ensure social cohesion and harmony at these challenging times.”
