Chesterfield came together today to remember those killed and injured in yesterday's terror attacks in London.

Members of the public joined Chesterfield Borough Council staff and councillors at various buildings across the town to observe a national one-minute silence timed to coincide with a silence held in Parliament at 9.33am.

Councillor John Burrows, the council's leader, said: "It is massively important that we let any terrorist organisation and individuals understand that Chesterfield, like London, like the United Kingdom, will not be swayed by any terrorist act.

"We are in support of our colleagues in Parliament.

"The tragedy that has struck there has our sympathy and support for the families affected."
