Books of condolence will open tomorrow (Tuesday) following Saturday's terror attack in London.

People will be able to leave messages in books of condolence at Newark, Southwell and Bingham libraries and at Welbeck House in Ollerton from 9am.

There will be a national minute's silence tomorrow at 11am following an attack at London Bridge and Borough Market which left seven people dead.

Flags are flying at half-mast on many public buildings, including Nottinghamshire County Council buildings, as a sign of solidarity.

Councillor Kay Cutts, leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, has written to Sadiq Kahn, Mayor of London, to express sympathy and reassurance that London is in our thoughts.

Mrs Cutts said: "I am sure I speak for all the people of Nottinghamshire by expressing our deep condolences to the families and friends of the innocent people who lost their lives or were injured in the attack at London Bridge and Borough Market in London on Saturday. We stand together with all those affected.

"Just as at Westminster and Manchester recently, the bravery and professionalism of our emergency services was incredible.

"I would like to add our tributes for their swift and comprehensive response.

"These despicable, cowardly terrorists have attacked people out enjoying themselves in a blatant attempt to unnerve the public and disrupt the freedoms that are at the very core of British values.

"But we will not let them and the subsequent ‘business as usual’ response from all Londoners sends a clear message that terrorism will never succeed."

Existing books of condolence for the Manchester terrorist attack will remain open until June 14.
