Chesney Hawkes and Leyland-born The Voice winner Kevin Simm turned out for the One Voice One Love memorial concert held at Tarleton Academy last night.

Funds are being raised to create memorials for Georgina Callendar and Saffie Rose Roussos, who both had links to the village.

Georgina, 18, and eight-year-old Saffie were both killed in the bomb which was set off after the Arianna Grande concert in Manchester in May.
