The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have officially opened a new memorial to victims of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing.
The royal couple travelled to the city to join bereaved families in a service at the Glade Of Light monument.

After the ceremony, Kate laid flowers and the royal pair were shown around the construction, which bears the names of those killed in the suicide attack.

William praised the "extraordinary" city for its response to the atrocity.

Twenty-two people died and hundreds more were injured in the attack at the end of an Ariana Grande concert on 22 May of that year.

The duke said the memorial, which features a white marble "halo" centrepiece, would be a place of solace for bereaved families and for all Mancunians.
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
