There was a 1 minute silence at 11am today at all Highland Council premises in tribute to the victims of the Manchester bomb attack. 

At the Council’s headquarters on Glenurquhart Road, Inverness, staff joined Convener of The Highland Council, Cllr Bill Lobban and Members to observe the silence.

Convener Lobban said: “As we gather here this morning, we do so to remember the families who have lost loved one and all those who have been injured by the horrific act of terror in Manchester.

“The pain that has been caused by this brutal act is beyond our imagination and our deepest sympathies are with all those who have suffered as a result of this deeply shocking act of evil.

“As we stand together, I would now invite you to pause to remember all those innocent lives that have been affected by the events in Manchester.”
