McDonald’s in city centre holds minute’s silence

Customers observed a minute's silence in honour of the Manchester bomb victims

Customers and staff at Canterbury city centre’s McDonald’s have this afternoon held a minute’s silence to honour those who died in the Manchester bombing a year ago.

Staff closed the doors and stopped serving food as the St George’s Street restaurant fell silent in memory of the 22 people who lost their lives attending an Ariana Grande concert.

Suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a homemade explosive device made of shrapnel, nuts and bolts in the venue’s foyer of the Manchester Arena.

Abedi’s youngest victim was just eight years old. Isis claimed responsibility for the attack.

The McDonald’s restaurant opened its immediately after the silence. Other venues across the UK also held silences at 2.30pm.
