Tricolour flies at half-mast for France once more

The Tricolour, the national flag of France, is flying at half-mast at The Highland Council’s Headquarters and Town House in Inverness, as a mark of respect and solidarity for those affected by the terrible incident in Nice.

Convener of The Highland Council, Cllr Isobel McCallum expressed her sympathies, on behalf of the Council, with the people of France.

She said: “All of us will be thinking of those affected by so many lives lost and shattered in this tragic and despicable act, in the beautiful city of Nice.”

She went on to say: “This touches all of us across the world. We need to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious to the Police, whilst it is imperative we continue to celebrate our freedom and live our normal lives, without allowing the threat of terrorism to shatter our freedom and the values we hold dear.”
