|One Year After: London Remembers
- Poignant services and silences held for September 11 victims
ST. PAUL'S Cathedral today becomes a shrine to those who died a year ago in the terrorist atrocity in New York City.
Families of the 67 British people who died when the World Trade Centre towers collapsed will be joined at the famous church by hundreds of others with close ties to New York, including Prime Minister Tony Blair.
"This week we remember those that died. Our thoughts are also with their families and friends who live daily with the dreadful legacy of these attacks," Blair said.
Remembrance events will also take place in other parts of London and the UK, including London Central Mosque, which holds its service at 11.00. Many offices and factories will observe a minutes silence at 13.46 London time, the exact time the first aeroplane hit the World Trade Centre last year.
Many Americans in London have been invited to attend a service at the US Embassy on Grosvenor Square.
