A minute's silence has been held across the UK at midday to remember those affected by a terrorist attack in Tunisia a week ago.

Flags are being flown at half-mast over Buckingham Palace in London, while play at Wimbledon will be delayed.

The Queen and Prime Minister David Cameron joined the silence to remember 38 people, including 30 Britons, who lost their lives in the Tunisia attack last Friday.

A special ceremony was also held at the scene of the attack in Sousse, Tunisia.

A number of mosques took part in the silence too, and many will also remember the victims during Friday prayers.

Seventeen of the British victims have now been returned to their families in the UK with two further flights planned for Friday and Saturday.
