Stockton-on-Tees is paying tribute to victims of the tragic events in Paris.
A one-minute silence held throughout Europe at 11am today was observed by people across Stockton Borough in honour of those who lost their lives in Saturday’s attacks.
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council is flying the flags at Stockton’s Municipal Buildings and Town Hall at half-mast today while the lighting in the town centre and along the iconic Riverside will be turned red, white and blue tonight and tomorrow.
The Mayor of Stockton, Councillor Ian Dalgarno, said: “Our deepest thoughts and sympathies are with everyone affected by these atrocities.
"In memory of all those who lost their lives, we will be lighting the Riverside in the colours of the Tricolore flag and a book of condolence will be available in Stockton Central Library for those who wish to leave messages of support.”
The book of condolence is located in the entrance of Stockton Central Library and Customer Service Centre.
