A peace vigil to remember the victims of recent terror attacks will be held in St Albans tomorrow.
The St Albans Women’s Interfaith Group is running the event to stand strong and united with the people of Manchester, London, and the whole of Britain.
The first attack this year came on March 22 when an extremist mounted the pavement over Westminster Bridge, ploughing down walkers and pushing people into the Thames, before getting out and stabbing a police officer.
On May 22 a suicide bomber killed 22 people, including children, at Manchester Arena during an Ariana Grande gig.
Shortly afterwards, on June 3, people in London’s Borough Market were stabbed by three terrorists who had also driven a van into pedestrians on London Bridge.
