Many are honouring Manchester man Andrew Graystone after he stood outside a Manchester mosque following the shooting of 50 people at mosques in New Zealand.

Graystone held a sign that read: "You are my friends. I will keep watch while you pray."

It comes after shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

On Friday, Graystone tweeted a message asking Christians to gather outside local mosques during Friday prayers to 'stand guard'.

Graystone stood outside a Levenshulme mosque and 'kept watch' during Friday prayers.

Many have since praised Graystone on social media.

TV and Radio broadcaster Mohammed Shafiq said he was 'deeply honoured' to meet Andrew, giving him thanks and a hug.
