The Steve Prescott Bridge stood alongside buildings across the world at the weekend as it was lit up with the tricolour.

The bridge was lit up in red, white and blue, like the London Eye and Sydney Opera House, to honour the victims of the Paris terrorist attack on Friday night.

St Helens council leader Barrie Grunewald asked for the bridge to be lit in the French flag after the attack in which 129 people were killed.me
