A SERVICE of remembrance to mark the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 will be held at St Nicholas' Church in Durham Market Place on Saturday.

The service at 2pm is open to all and will feature reflections, prayers and an opportunity for people to light candles to honour the memory of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

The Vicar of St Nics, the Reverend Arun Arora said: “Many people remember exactly where they were 20 years ago when they first heard or saw the events of 9/11. The events of that day are seared into the memories of any of us.

"This will be an opportunity for people of all faiths and none to come together to reflect on the events of that day and to stand in solidarity with all of those for whom the tragedy continues to echo in loss and mourning.”
