An explosion occurred at the Ariana Grande Dangerous Woman concert in Manchester Arena on Monday evening (22 May). Twenty-two people have been confirmed dead, while 59 people have been injured in what is being treated as a terrorist attack. Hundreds of concert goers left the arena after they heard ‘loud bangs’ going off after the show, causing mass panic.
Many of the concert goers were children of primary school age. Police have confirmed that there are children among the dead. Dozens of parents are still searching for their missing children. In a bid to help search for missing children, pictures of the missing are being circulated on social media.
Ariana Grande, according to a US representative, was not injured in the attack. Ariana has, however, concelled the rest of her tour. It has been established that the man that organised in the attack was killed at the scene. Prime Minister Theresea May released a statement in the early hours, saying: “We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by police as an appalling terrorist attack.”
