Sunderland Minster has opened a chapel for people to express their solidarity and sympathy for all of those caught up in the bomb blast in Manchester.
More than 20 people were killed and dozens injured when a suicide bomber detonated a device at Manchester Arena on Monday evening, following a performance by pop star Ariana Grande.
The Minster has now opened a chapel for people to show their support for those affected by the tragedy.
Rev Chris Howson, of Sunderland Minster, said: "Our prayers are for the victims of this horrific attack and for all those waiting for news of loved ones, including those who are missing from this region.
"Those who seek to divide our communities with hate will instead find us determined to show unity, love and compassion."
