Railings of a church in Preston have little flickers of pink along them following the Manchester attack.Advertisement
Central Methodist Church in Lune Street has invited ribbons to be tied to the rails along its front wall.
It’s a symbol of unity from Preston to its fellow North West city in the wake of Monday night’s attack.
Reverend Sue Griffiths said she wanted people to have a focus to pay their respects for what happened at Manchester Arena.

22 people died when a suicide bomber detonated his device in the foyer of the venue – and more than 50 people were left seriously injured, many of them children. One of the victims was an eight-year-old girl from Leyland, another a student at Runshaw College.
Ribbons are available in the coffee shop inside the church.
An appeal to raise money for the families of the victims of the Manchester bombing has been set up and has topped the £1.5million mark. You can donate here.
