Watch a single violinist pay a moving tribute to victims of the Paris attacks in Trafalgar Square

Thousands of people gathered in Trafalgar Square on Saturday night to pay tribute to the victims of the Paris attacks.

Images of the French flag were projected against the walls of The National Gallery as members of the crowd held their phones above their heads by way of marking their presence.

The crowd briefly parted to make way for a single violinist, who made his way across the square and took up stand to play two pieces of beautifully mournful music.

Once he finished playing he shouted "Vive la France" at the top of his voice, packed up his violin and dissolved into the masses.
