As the community came together in Loughborough on Saturday to show support for the people of Ukraine, we spoke to Gosia Khrais from the Polish community, Charnwood Borough Council Leader Jonathan Morgan and Mayor of Charnwood, Cllr Paul Baines for this video.

People gathered at the Sockman statue in the town centre and for the day he was dressed in a blue and yellow sock, the colours of the Ukraine flag. 

Loughborough Town Hall also flew the Polish flag alongside the Ukrainian flag.
