A vigil is being held in London for the victims of the Paris terror attacks.

128 people died and more than 300 were injured in the attacks on the French capital last night.

Hundreds flocked to Trafalgar Square and other parts of London to pay their respects to those lost.

The National Potrait Gallery was also lit up with the colours of the French flag as a sign of solidarity with the French people.
