Flags are at half mast at Nottinghamshire councils today as the county pays its respects to those affected by the terror attack in Barcelona.

On Thursday afternoon, August 17, a van rammed into a crowd of people in Barcelona, killing 13 people and injuring at least 100.

The atrocity was followed hours later by a second possible terror attack in Cambrils, south of Barcelona, where police shot dead five suspected terrorists.

Nottinghamshire County Council said: Our flags at County Hall have been lowered to half-mast as a mark of respect for the victims of the attack in Barcelona.

And Ashfield District Council tweeted: "We are flying the flag at half mast today to remember those who lost their lives in the #BarcelonaAttacks"
