A Halifax couple joined Prince Harry and loved ones of Britons killed in terror attacks in Tunisia at a special memorial service at Westminster Abbey.

Richard Paciukanis, 60, attended with his wife, Bernadette. They had been out in Tunisia for the 57th birthday of Mrs Paciukanis when the gunman struck, and she described a bullet narrowly missing her head in the hotel.

“It’s helped a little bit – I think this is maybe part of the ending. It will never be the ending but it has helped,” Mr Paciukanis said. “It was my birthday that day so it will always be there. The bereaved that came through with the candles was very nice, very moving.”

Harry laid a wreath at the Innocent Victims Memorial on behalf of his grandmother the Queen as he gathered with survivors and families affected by the two atrocities in 2015.
