Birmingham City Council will be joining the one minute’s silence taking place across Europe at 11am GMT today, 16 November, in memory of the victims of the Paris terror attacks.

The Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Cllr Raymond Hassall, will lead the one minute’s silence from outside the Library of Birmingham, and Union flags and the French Tricolour will be flown at half-mast at the Council House, Victoria Square and Centenary Square throughout the day.

Over the weekend, the Lord Mayor sent the following message to President Francois Hollande and the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo:  “I am writing to express my deep shock and sorrow at the appalling loss of life in Paris.  On behalf of the people of Birmingham, I send our most sincere condolences to you, the families of those who have died and the French people.”
