Manchester bombing victim, 8, was 'a lovely little girl'

After the tragic events at Manchester Arena last night, the team at the First Direct Arena is aware of a potentially heightened threat level against venues across the country.

At least 22 people, including children, have been killed in a bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, in the deadliest attack on British soil since the 2005 London bombings.

Simon told the County Press: "With the attacks in Paris and other places around the world, you feel nearly powerless to help, but this is something on our own soil and I am more than happy to help someone in genuine need".

Prime Minister Theresa May condemned what was being treated as an "appalling terrorist attack" and said she would chair a meeting of the Government's emergency Cobra committee on Tuesday. Ariana Grande tweets that the incident has left her "broken". "And I'm telling you, a more tight-knit group of people you will be hard-pressed to find - strong, proud, caring people with community at its core", he said.

Manchester Arena said the explosion happened outside the venue, as people began streaming from the doors. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry.

Police later said the blast killed 22 people, and over 50 people were injured.

Manchester resident Charlotte Campbell told CNN as she was still waiting for news on her 15-year-old daughter, Olivia.

Despite local police confirming it to be a terrorist attack, she said she wanted people - including New Zealanders - to know that the feeling in the city was not so much fear but the need to unite and help each other.

"I've called the hospitals".

In the late morning after the attack, police said that they had made an arrest in connection with the incident.

"We ran out", Robinson told Reuters.

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke with May by telephone and agreed the attack was "particularly wanton and depraved", the White House said.

Islamic State, while claiming responsibility on its Telegram account, appeared to contradict British police's description of a suicide bomber. The great city of Manchester has been affected by terrorism before.

"This wicked ideology must be obliterated".

Grande was scheduled to play two more shows in the United Kingdom before continuing her Dangerous Woman tour in Europe and the Americas.

A witness who attended the concert said she felt a huge blast as she was leaving the arena, followed by screaming and a rush by thousands of people trying to escape the building.
