During last night’s vigil, a performance from local poet Tony Walsh stood out. His poem, ‘This Is The Place’, captures the spirit of a city that is well known for so much – its people, its industry and, of course, its music. Dave Haslam is a writer and musician who DJ’d at the legendary Hacienda…
Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, Diane Abbott, and Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman and former police officer, Lord Paddick, discuss the response to the Manchester bombing, including the decision to deploy soldiers at public places in London.
Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon says the decision to raise the terrorism threat level was made independently and deploying troops in public places, to “backfill” for the police, was a “direct response” to this. He adds that the Government has increased the number of armed police officers in recent years.
Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham says the terror attack “defies any reasoning” and people will not let it divide the city.
In the last hour, Manchester has come together to hold a vigil in memory of those who died, for the families of the injured and for the whole community here.

Another attempt to broker peace in Syria began in Geneva this week. The Syrian regime and opposition forces agreed four main de-escalation zones in the north. Despite this ‘”truce”, though, there hasn’t been an end to the fighting and killing. There were reportedly more than 200 civilian casualties during last week’s ceasefire alone – half…
We speak to Dr Abbas Ali Shameli a scholar and preacher based in Qom about recent moderate changes in Iran, and Iran’s connections to the outside world – including Syria.
Ever since the Iranian Revolution of 1979, this place Qom has been the Centre of both political and religious power in Iran.
Since his election in 2013, Hassan Rouhani has helped his country reach a nuclear deal with the wider world, involving the lifting of sanctions and the pursuit of peaceful nuclear power programmes.
