On Saturday afternoon, scores of people gathered for a peace rally in Nottingham in response to the London bombings. The event in Market Square was arranged by the Nottingham Muslim Action Group.
Organisers said the aim of the rally was to remember the victims of the bombings and promote solidarity between people of all races and faiths. and of course, no-faiths. The event was backed by a range of other faith groups.
After two-minute silence, 56 white balloons were released to represent and remember those that died as a result of the London explosions.
A similar rally was held last weekend in Leicester.
