Sefton Council has been remembering those who lost their lives in Paris last week.  As a mark of respect and expression of solidarity, flags at Southport, Waterloo and Bootle Town Halls have been lowered to half-mast.

In council buildings, staff observed a minute’s silence at 11am in recognition of the terrorist incidents on Friday 13 November. The Atkinson building on Lord Street, Southport has also been lit up in the three colours of the French flag.

Books of condolences have now opened at Bootle and Southport Town Hall reception, and members of the public are invited to write their tributes in the book up until 6.30pm on Monday 23 November when they will be closed.
