Westminster Tribute: Flags Fly at Half Mast in Swansea

Council pays respect to terror attack victims

Flags at two civic buildings are flying at half-mast as Swansea pays its respects to the victims of the Westminster terrorism attack.

Three people were killed, along with the assailant, in Wednesday's attack, which happened close to the Houses of Parliament.

About 40 other people from 11 different countries were also injured, with seven remaining in a critical condition.

Both the Welsh and the Union flags are now flying at half-mast outside Guildhall and the Civic Centre.



David Hopkins, Swansea Lord Mayor, said: "Our thoughts are with the city of London and the families and friends of all those either killed or injured in Wednesday's attack.

"This was a cowardly act that will only serve to strengthen everyone's resolve in the civilised world to celebrate democracy and defeat evil."

Like elsewhere in the UK, staff at Swansea Council also observed a minute's silence at 9.33am this morning (Thursday March 23) to mark the start of the parliamentary session in London.
