It has been confirmed that children are among those who has sadly died in the Manchester Terror Attack.

22 people including children have died after an explosion which hit Manchester Arena at the end of a pop concert by US singer Ariana Grande.

59 people have been injured in the explosion which Greater Manchester Police believe was carried out by a single male attacker.

GMP’s chief constable Ian Hopkins said a man detonated an “improvised explosive device” outside the Arena and died in the attack.
Witnesses reported hearing a “huge bang” at the venue shortly after the concert on Monday evening.
Chief constable Mr Hopkins said police believe the attacker acted alone but said the priority was to find out if he was part of a wider network.

“This is the most horrific incident we have ever faced,” he said. “We have been treating this as a terrorist incident.”
He added: “I can confirm children are among the deceased.”
