Eight candles - one to represent each of the people killed in the London Bridge terror attack - were placed on the altar of Southwark Cathedral by pupils from a local school as part of a 'service of hope' attended by the Countess of Wessex on Friday.

@chrissykinsella @SomersetHouse Think it was a corporate do - fireworks on river not likely anything to do with the SH venue management.

@dannyboyfriar @SomersetHouse Blame the company that hired the venue - likely nothing to do with SH itself.

@MartG_85 @williambaeck Not sure Somerset House itself to blame - likely down to whoever has hired the space tonight.
