Gravesham council have announced that attendance is open to all.

A minute’s silence will be observed in Gravesham tomorrow as a mark of respect for the victims of the terror attacks in London on June 3.

Just after 10pm on Saturday night, a van drove into pedestrians on London Bridge before three men left the vehicle and continued their attack with knives in Borough Market. Seven members of the public were killed, and a further 48 injured as a result.

Within eight minutes of the first 999 call, police had shot dead all three terrorists, and the following day, arrested a further 12 people believed to be connected.

London Bridge has since reopened to the public, and the number of armed officers on the streets have increased again. Borough Market remains closed.

The vigil at Gravesham’s Community Square will take place alongside the national minute’s silence at 11am on June 6.

Attendance is open to all.
