THOSE who died in the devastating Grenfell Tower fire will be remembered in special ceremony on the Town Hall steps tomorrow evening.

A service and vigil will take place in tribute to the 72 exactly a year since the tragedy in West London.

The short ceremony, one of many taking place across the country, will start at 6.15pm.

Kev Allsop, treasure of Bolton Trades Union Council, said: “Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham is attending the vigil.

“There will be a 72 second silence during which those who lost their lives will be remembered.

“Pictures of those who died will be carried during the service, and each name will be read out and words about each person who died will be said.”

Council and faith leaders have been invited and members of the public are invited to take part in the vigil.

Mr Allsop said on a personal level this vigil was important to him as he had a friend who lived in Grenfell and has only recently secured a permanent place to live — but also to show support those affected who are left feeling with a sense of injustice and of being let down by local authorities and the government.

“My friend has only recently accepted an offer but there are those who still not have permanent accommodation,” said Mr Allsop.

Following the service, a public meeting will be held discussing housing issues.
