It was a gloomy and downhearted end to a concert in Manchester headlined by American singer, Ariana Grande as a bomb exploded leaving 22 people dead and 59 injured.
The lone suicide bomber struck as Ariana finished her performance and was exiting the stage.
What followed was pandemonium and chaos as attendees scampered for safety.
The Greater Manchester Police say that it was the biggest attack in the UK since the 7/7 bombings (7th July 2015).
Ian Hopkins, the Chief constable of the Greater Manchester Police, said:
“We are currently treating this as terrorist incident until we have further information. This is clearly a very concerning time for everyone. We’re doing all that we can, working with local and national agencies to support those affected as we gather information about what happened last night. As you’ll understand, we are still (gathering) information and updated, so we’ll provide further details when we have a clearer picture.”
23-Year-Old Ariana Grande tweeted: “Broken. from the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.”
Our heart goes out to the victims.
