Mayor Joe says Manchester bomb "a warning to us all" as security stepped up for weekend events

Mayor Joe Anderson1 said the devastating bomb attack in Manchester is a warning to the city of Liverpool as security is stepped up ahead of major events this weekend.

Speaking at last night s council meeting, the Mayor said the city can never do enough to fight off the threat of terrorism but said extra plans are being put in place for the Sound City2 music festival and the Rock n Roll marathon3 which are taking place in the city this weekend.

Security is being stepped up for the events and the Mayor said people can expect to see an increased number of staff and police on duty carrying out extra security checks.

He also announced a new cabinet role of community and safer neighbourhoods – handed to Mossley Hill Cllr Emily Spurrell – which will look specifically at keeping people in the city safe from attacks. Mayor Anderson said: Manchester is a warning to us all that the existential threat of terrorism exists.

We can never do enough because these people want to cause mayhem and bloodshed because of some mad desire to change the way we live.

We have to get smarter in the way we do things.

Speaking about the new cabinet role for Cllr Spurrell, he added: She will work closely with the emergency services and the private sector – for example reviewing CCTV footage from businesses around the city. But in a defiant message he made it clear Liverpool will operate as normal this weekend and in the future – albeit with increased security.

He added: But we will send a clear message with Sound City and the Liverpool Marathon this weekend going ahead as normal.

Nothing will stop us from operating as we do – no atrocity like this will stop us.

UEFA confirm Europa League final to go ahead but will increase security in wake of Manchester attack

A terror attack4 at an Ariana Grande concert left 22 people dead and 59 injured. UEFA have two major finals in the next 11 days, with Wednesday’s clash followed by the pinnacle of the European season on Saturday week – the Champions League final in Cardiff.

Seeking to allay fears, UEFA have stated that there is “currently no specific intelligence” that the final will be targeted. UEFA have urged supporters travelling to the Friends Arena that “detailed checks” will take place upon arrival.

“UEFA is shocked by last night’s attack in Manchester .

Our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those affected,” read the statement.

“There is currently no specific intelligence which might suggest that any of the UEFA Europa League final activities in Stockholm may be the target of attacks.

“UEFA has been closely working with local authorities and the Swedish FA for many months and the terrorist risk had been taken into account since the very beginning of the project.

“Furthermore, a number of additional security measures were implemented following the attacks in Stockholm last April.

“Due to the tight security arrangements, UEFA urges fans to arrive at the stadium as early as possible, as detailed checks will be made at the entrances, resulting in potential in accessing the stadium.”

United fly out to the Swedish capital on Tuesday, ahead of the clash with the Dutch giants .

They are expected to ask UEFA if they can wear black armbands.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin offered his condolences

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin added: “I am deeply saddened by the horrible terrorist attack in Manchester last night.

“It shocks me that so many innocent people lost their lives and I would like to send my condolences to the families of those affected.”
