West Yorkshire Combined Authority following London attacks.

Speaking on the minute�s silence planned for 11am on Tuesday 7 June, for those affected by Saturday evening�s attacks in London, Ben Still, Managing Director of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, said:

�I express the Combined Authority�s deepest condolences to people who were attacked while out enjoying themselves with their families and friends. We also send our respects to all those people who bravely stepped in, in the call of duty or voluntarily, and put their lives on the line for people around them.

�Once again, I am sure people will have been inspired by the humanity and bravery shown on Saturday evening and the quick response of all the emergency services. And like me, many people across the country will have been heartened by the joyous atmosphere of last night�s concert in Manchester, which was a defiant response to the recent tragic events in that city.

�West Yorkshire Combined Authority invites the public to join us in marking the minute�s silence in its Metro bus stations across West Yorkshire at 11am tomorrow, Tuesday 7 June.�
