TOMORROW is the second anniversary of the Manchester Arena Attack in which 22 people lost their lives.

No official public services or memorials are taking place but a personal and private service for the families of victims and those injured will be held in St Ann's Church, Manchester.

During that service at 2.30pm a minute's silence will be observed.

It has been agreed by civic leaders with the families that this year's commemorations will be more private than last year's.

Like last year, at 10.31pm on May 22 – the exact anniversary – bells will ring out from buildings across the city centre including Manchester Town Hall, Manchester Cathedral and St Ann’s Church.

Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, said: “Manchester will never forget the terrible events of 22 May 2017 nor the remarkable display of unity and love which followed."

Manchester Cathedral will be open today and everyone is welcome to spend time in quiet reflection and prayer. There will be opportunities to light a candle and remember those who died.
