RESIDENTS are urged to take part in a one-minute silence to help pay their respects to Prince Philip.

The Duke of Edinburgh died on Friday aged 99 and a one-minute silence is being organised to help remember the Royal.

The silence will take place on Saturday (April 17) at 3pm.

Council bosses have also created a book of condolence which local residents can sign and leave any memories they have of the prince.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Council said: “We’ve been privileged to have welcomed Prince Philip on numerous occasions to Barnsley.

“Many of you may remember a visit from both Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip to the Metrodome Leisure Complex in 1991 when they also signed the official Civic visitor book, which proudly sits in the Mayor’s Parlour at the Town Hall.”
