FOLLOWING the tragic attack in Reading on Saturday, the planned online activities for Armed Forces Day have been cancelled.

Reading Borough Council said it hopes to reschedule the plans for later in the year, and will confirm details as soon as it can.

Typically, Armed Forces Day events such as entertainment, information and activities, take place across the town, including Forbury Gardens - which was the sight of the terror attack where three people were killed.

Plans had moved online after lockdown began, but the council has cancelled these in light of the tragedy.

A vigil has been organised by residents to take place a week on from the attack, on Saturday, June 27 at 7pm.

The exact location of the vigil has not been confirmed yet, because organisers are still trying to find out where would be best and where police would advise holding it, but it is likely to be outside the town hall.

Three men, James Furlong, Joe Ritchie-Bennett and David Wails were killed after a lone man began stabbing people in the park.

A man has since been arrested and he remains in police custody.
