North Somerset Council is flying the Ukrainian flag at its main buildings as a symbol of solidarity with the people of Ukraine and everyone affected by the conflict and humanitarian crisis. The flag was hoisted today at both the Town Hall in Weston-super-Mare and the Castlewood building in Clevedon. A council spokesman said: " My heart goes out to everyone affected by the atrocities we are witnessing in Ukraine. More than a million people have fled the country already with many more expected to follow. Families have been torn apart, lives have been lost, homes destroyed and there has been unspeakable suffering.
