Police have confirmed that there have been 22 people killed after a suicide bomber terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.
Accounts of what happened suggest that loud bangs were heard shortly after the end of the performance. Over 50 people have also been injured in the blast, which was said to have taken place in the foyet of the building rather than the venue itself.
A controlled explosion has been undertaken on a suspicious second suspect device and the police are dealing with the incident as a terrorist attack.
At least one hotel in the area are taking in young concert-goers who attended without parents or guardians, with several small children also reported missing since the incident took place.
