Hastings council to observe national minute’s silence for Tunisia dead

A minute’s silence will be held in Queens Square at midday today (July 3) by Hastings Borough Council to mourn the victims of the terror attack in Tunisia a week ago.

The flag will be flown at half-mast from the town hall in rememberance of the 38 people, including 30 Britons, killed in Sousse on Friday, June 26.

People across the country will be paying their respects to the victims of the deadliest attack on the UK since the 7/7 bombings.

Prime Minister David Cameron announced the nationwide rememberance in the House of Commons yesterday and promised a “full spectrum response” to extremist terror.

Everyone is welcome to join the members and officers of the council in mourning, who will be leaving the town hall at 11.55am.
