St Paul's joins nation in minute's silence for Manchester

St Paul's Cathedral fell quiet as it joined the nation in silence for the victims of the Manchester bombing. 

Staff and volunteers were joined by City workers and tourists from around the world to pause as the clock bell struck 11am on Thursday 25 May.

Members of the Cathedral Chapter were joined on the west steps by Sheikh Khalifa Ezzat, chief imam at the London Central Mosque.

The nationwide silence came as Her Majesty The Queen was in Manchester visiting some of those injured in the bombing. A day earlier she had been at St Paul's as the Dean prayed "we commend to God's love those who suffer at the hands of others in Manchester and elsewhere."

A candle for the victims continues to burn in St Paul's. A chapel is always set aside for private prayer.
