The council lowered its flags on Tuesday

A book of condolence for victims of the Manchester terror attack which shocked the country on Monday night has been opened at Bromley’s Civic Centre.

On Monday, a suicide blast killed 23 people, including the terrorist Salman Abadi, inside the Manchester Arena who were leaving an Ariana Grande concert.

The following day, flags at the Civic Centre were lowered by Bromley council “as a sign of respect, solidarity and sympathy”.

Now residents are able to express their own thoughts on the attack in a book of condolences for the friends and families of the victims of the attack, which saw 120 people injured.

The book is found in the main reception at the centre.

A spokesperson from the council added: “Met Police has informed us of the enhanced level of policing that will apply in our borough and across London, providing both protection and reassurance in a highly visible way.

“If you have any information about suspicious activity or behaviour, call 0800 789 321 and in an emergency, if you need urgent police assistance, you should always dial 999.”
