A one-minute silence to honour the victims of the Paris terror attacks, in which at least 129 people were killed, has been observed across the UK.

The silence was held to coincide with tributes in France and across Europe following Friday's attacks on bars and restaurants, a concert hall and the Stade de France.

Many buildings around the UK have been illuminated with the colours of the French tricolour.
