The flag of Belgium has been flying at half-mast at Rochdale town hall since the afternoon on 22 March. A minute’s silence was held at the cenotaph in The Esplanade at 11am today.

Council Leader Richard Farnell said: “Our thoughts are with the Belgium people at this time and I’m sure Rochdale’s caring public joins the council in standing shoulder to shoulder with them in condemning these and all other attacks against innocent people. Yesterday’s atrocities will only strengthen our resolve to defeat terrorism. We must be together, regardless of nationality, race or faith in fighting against the scourge of terrorism.”
