Muslims are set to gather outside one of Sheffield's biggest mosques today to remember the victims of the London terror attack.

They will be gathering outside the Madina Masjid Sheffield Islamic Centre at 1pm today as a "show of solidarity" - one week on from the attack in the capital.

There will be a minute's silence followed by speeches from religious and community leaders.

In a Facebook post, mosque leaders said: "In light of last weeks ferocious attack in Westminster a solidarity and remembrance event has been organised by the masjid for the victims and to show our support for the people of London.

"Everyone is invited to attend as we come together and stand with one voice."

Last Wednesday 52-year-old Briton Khalid Masood deliberately drove a car into pedestrians along Westminster Bridge, injuring more than 50 people and killing three. He then fatally stabbed police officer Keith Palmer while trying to enter Parliament before being shot dead by another officer.
