Council observes one minute silence today

We will be observing a one minute silence this morning at 11am in all council buildings and flags are flying at half-mast today. 

Councillor Warren Morgan, leader of the council, said: “Brighton & Hove stands in solidarity with Paris. We send our deepest sympathy to all those who have died or been injured in these appalling attacks. On behalf of the city, we also reach out to all those around the world to show solidarity. Wherever it takes place, violence against innocent people will not be tolerated. As well as our neighbours in France, we also stand in unity with all nations where recent terror attacks have taken place.

“While there is no intelligence to link the Paris attacks to the UK, Sussex Police and Brighton & Hove City Council are asking all residents to report any suspicious behaviour or activity immediately by calling the confidential anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321 or 999 in an emergency.”
