People gathered on Weston beach to pay their respects to the 22 victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester.
More than 50 people were injured in the atrocity, when a man let off a bomb inside the Manchester Arena.
Towns and cities across the country observed a minute’s silence on May 26 to remember those killed and injured and a memorial event was held on May 28 night in Weston as people met near Marine Lake.
Candles were lit and placed in the shape of heart, before people fell silent.
Organiser Chantelle Williams said: “I had been in Cardiff the week previously with my mum to see The Vamps and I could just picture every moment in my head of what it must of been like (to go through the attack).
“I felt very emotionally close to what happened on May 23 and as young lady I just wanted to do my bit.”
