Thousands packed into Albert Square for the Manchester Together – With One Voice event.

The mass singalong remembered the victims of last year’s Manchester Arena bombing and followed a remembrance service held earlier in the day at Manchester Cathedral.

Speaking on stage, the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Joan Hitchen, said: “Tonight the city of Manchester continues to demonstrate our solidarity to those who were affected by the terrible events of one year ago.”

She thanked the brave men and women of the various emergency responders who helped “bring our Manchester together again”.

The crowd responded with huge applause as she said: “Weren’t they brilliant?”

She went on: “We also stand in solidarity with each other as Mancunians and tonight we are going to show the world that we stand together.”

Earlier in the day, hundreds of those injured and the families of those killed were joined by the Duke of Cambridge and Prime Minister Theresa May, as well as emergency services staff, civic leaders and other national figures.
