Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Paul Kane said:

Once again my heart goes out to our neighbours in Europe in the wake of the shocking events yesterday in Brussels. Once more the lives of innocent people going about their daily lives have been affected. My thoughts and condolences are with the people of Brussels and victims of terrorism worldwide.

Please take the time to share your messages of sympathy in the books or if you can’t get to the book please email mayors.office@kirklees.gov.uk and we will print them out and include them in the book.”
