Manchester: A minute’s pause captured across the country

Friday’s regional newspapers continued to be dominated by events in Manchester, with an increasing focus on the impact the actions of terrorists were having in their areas.

More than 50 newspapers led with stories related to Monday’s terror attack, with victims being named, armed police on the street – and tens of thousands of people taking part in a minute’s silence on Thursday morning captured in many papers too.

For the Manchester Evening News, it was time to reflect a different mood emerging in the city – that of the debt of gratitude so many feel towards the emergency services:

Many weekly papers had stories of people who felt lucky to be alive, such as this example from Wakefield:

While other papers, such as the Nelson Leader, had stories of how fate spared some:
