Bishop of Wakefield Tony Robinson will lead prayers on the steps of the city’s cathedral in a multi-faith event this coming Saturday.

It has been organised following the events at London Bridge and Borough Market, in which eight people died and 48 were injured.

People from all faiths and communities are invited to Saturday’s vigil from 3pm.

Community activist Usman Ali said: “There is something in common in between us all which is to work together with people from different walks of life to promote peace, love and harmony within our society.”

The vigil will also offer prayers and solidarity to those affected by an attack on the Iranian capital Tehran on Wednesday.

It will he held almost two weeks after hundreds of people gathered outside the cathedral following a bombing which killed 22 people in Manchester on May 22.
