"It is tragic to hear confirmation that that Wendy Fawell was killed in the Manchester attack, having been missing since then. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. The whole town of Otley and neighbouring communities and devastated at this news and are in mourning for Wendy.

"When local came together in a vigil in Otley on Tuesday night, local people joined together in reflection and prayer in the hope that Wendy would be found safe, sadly that has not happened and the news that people feared has now come through.

"The strong community in Otley and in the surrounding area will come together and support the family at this most awful time, people are offering their support and a crowdfunding site has been set up to help the family.

"People in this area are showing the very best in community spirit and we stand together with Wendy's family and friends and all those victims of this despicable attack. Wendy and her family will remain in our thoughts and prayers".
