At 6pm on Tuesday (May 23) a small and dignified group of people gathered on the Llanelli Town Hall steps to hold a candlelit vigil for the victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester, which to date has claimed the lives of at least 22 people with another 50 or more injured. The victims were as young as eight-years old. The barbaric terrorist act has been condemned by political leaders the world over.
Thousands gathered at a vigil at Albert Square in Manchester this evening. Here in Llanelli the Mayor of the town paid his own tribute to the emergency services in Manchester and sent his own personal message to the mayor of Manchester.
Councillor Edmunds was joined by John Evans the Chairman of Llanelli Rural Council, Nia Griffith, Mari Arthur, the Reverend Eldon Phillips and the Reverend David Jones as well as councillors from across Llanelli and local police officers. Flags were flying at half mast at the town hall. You can watch the film of the event here.
