A book of condolence for victims of the terrorist attacks in Brussels has been opened at Lichfield Cathedral.
More than 30 people were killed on attacks on an airport and the city’s metro system earlier this week.
The Very Revd Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield, said he hoped people of all faiths would come together to show solidarity.
“On behalf of the community at Lichfield Cathedral I want to extend our prayers and sympathy to the families of all those who lost their lives in the terrorist bombings at Brussels airport and the metro.
“Brussels is a lively, youthful, international and multi-cultural city with a very high proportion of global and European institutions having their headquarters there. It prides itself on its tolerance and inclusivity. Attacks such as this are designed to de-stabilise and demoralise.
“In the face of evil, people of faith, and all people of conscience, must come together to show our belief in the sovereignty of goodness and justice.
“A condolence book will also be in place to collect expressions of sympathy and solidarity.”
