Photo 2: Crowds gathered in St. Ann’s Square at 10.31pm on 22nd May 2018 for a minute’s silence to mark exactly one year since the terror attack at Manchester Arena. The moment’s silence ended a series of events, throughout the day, across the city centre to mark the first anniversary of the attack.
