As Manchester residents, fellow Brits and the rest of the world recover from the shocking terrorist attack a week ago Monday at an Ariana Grande concert, a disturbing event was recently recorded at a memorial site in a nearby town.
Stalybridge is eight miles east of the center of Manchester, where the bombing occurred. Immediately, local residents responded by bringing flowers and other mementos to a makeshift memorial set up at a sundial in the center of Stalybridge to honor the 22 slain in the attack. A vigil and a moment of silence were held. A book of condolences was made available for people to express their sentiments.
Mark McNally, 43, was waiting for a bus near the memorial site when he observed two young men acting strangely.
