A special message from the Pope to the people of Manchester was read out at a multi-faith vigil held in the city centre.

Religious leaders gathered for the event in St Ann’s Square, minutes away from where 22 people were killed - and more than 100 more injured - on Monday.

The event was organised by Manchester-based Muslim organisation the Ramadan Foundation to send a message that those of all faiths were standing together in the face of terrorism.

The short ceremony included a minute’s silence for those who lost their lives and the 150 people injured in the suicide bombing at the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.
