Minute's Silence

I was in Royton in time for the minute's silence in memory of the 22 who died at the Arena last year.
There were plenty of people gathered in the centre of Royton, around the Town Hall.
James was present, and the new leader of the council, Sean Fielding.
At precisely 2.30pm all the traffic stopped on the main road. and people bowed their heads in remembrance of the victims.

Very moving.

Good to hear. Where I was working had Radio2 on which fell silent at 2-30 also.

Same with XS Radio, but you would expect that from a Manchester based station.

They had a really nice touch to the "Your XS" section of the program today - Between 1-2pm they had 16 year old Adam Lawler who survived the arena attack picking his favourite tunes.  Don't think I've ever heard Ariana Grande track played on XS Manchester before!!!

Cranes across the city pointed towards the Manchester Arena at 2:30pm to pay tribute to the 22 who lost their lives one year ago.

Re: Minute's Silence

We stopped at work.  Except the guy who was making my new ID card at the time.
That was VERY embarrassing.
