A show of solidarity with France is to be made by Preston from Friday night onwards.Advertisement
The Harris Museum and Art Gallery is to be lit in the colours of the French flag following the Nice terror attacks.
It follows Preston City Council’s decision to fly the Union flag at half mast above the Town Hall.
The Harris is to be lit until Monday. It was lit back in November following the Paris terror attacks.
Cabinet member for culture and leisure councillor Peter Kelly said: “It’s a shocking attack on innocent people enjoying a night out with their families.
“The City Of Preston with its historic twinning, cultural and other ties has a long history of working together with France. This is a simple gesture of our solidarity and sympathy with the people of France at this difficult time.”
