Lynn's Town Hall will be turned purple tonight (Thursday, June 4) to show solidarity with the global fight against racism.

West Norfolk Council has said the display will support the Black Lives Matter campaign which has seen protests take place across the globe following the death of African-American George Floyd.

Posting on social media, the council said: "Last week was the last Clap for Carers, where we showed support and solidarity for our key workers. This week we show support and solidarity against racism of any kind."

The Saturday Market Place building has previously been lit up in green to mark Post-Polio Syndrome Day as well as blue for an NHS tribute during Clap for Carers.

And the latest announcement comes after a Black Lives Matter protest had been arranged outside the Town Hall on Saturday, June 13. This has subsequently been moved to the Walks due to an "unprecedented" response.
