A vigil in Northampton town centre last night saw people of all ages and faiths pay tribute to those killed in the recent terror attacks around the world.
Passers-by in Abington Street were invited to light candles and write messages out of respect for those massacred in shootings in Tunisia, Charleston and France in recent days.
Some chose to draw pictures in chalk and others left touching pleas for an end to the recent spate of terrorist acts, with one person writing: “The world wants love and peace.”
The event, held at the Cobbler’s Last statue, was organised by retired policeman Justin Brown, who said: “We had a good turnout with people from all different backgrounds and different faiths.
“We had Muslims, Hindus, Christians and people with no faith at all dropping by.
“I think it just goes to show how much these events have really affected everyone.”
