Nineteen people have been killed and about 50 injured in a suspected terror attack at Manchester Arena.
The blast happened at about 22:35 BST on Monday following a pop concert by the US singer Ariana Grande.
The cause is unknown but PM Theresa May said her thoughts were with those affected by "what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack".
British Transport Police said the explosion was in the arena's foyer.

The prime minister has suspended her general election campaigning and will chair a meeting of the government's emergency Cobra committee later, in response to the attack.
Mrs May said: "We are working to establish the full details" of what had happened in Manchester.
"All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected," Mrs May said.
BBC Home Affairs Correspondent Daniel Sandford said senior counter-terrorism officers were assembling in London and liaising with the Home Office.
Unconfirmed reports from two unnamed US officials suggested the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber.
The BBC's Tim Ashburner, who is at the scene, spoke to some volunteer paramedics who treated the injured for "shrapnel-like injuries".
The leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, tweeted: "Terrible incident in Manchester. My thoughts are with all those affected and our brilliant emergency services."
Greater Manchester metro mayor Andy Burnham said: "My heart goes out to families who have lost loved ones, my admiration to our brave emergency services. "A terrible night for our great city."
Shortly after the blast Manchester Victoria station, which is close to the concert venue, was closed and all trains cancelled.
Greater Manchester Police carried out a precautionary controlled explosion in the Cathedral Garden area of the city at about 01:32. The force confirmed it was not a suspicious item.
'Screaming and running'
A number of eyewitnesses have described the confusion in the aftermath.
Andy Holey, who had gone to the arena to pick up his wife and daughter who had been at the concert, said: "As I was waiting, an explosion went off and it threw me about 30ft from one set of doors to the other set of doors.
"When I got up I saw bodies lying on the ground. My first thought was to go into the arena to try to find my family.
"When I couldn't find them, I went outside with the police and fire and looked through some of the bodies to try and find my wife and daughter.
"I managed to find them eventually and they're OK.
"It was definitely an explosion and it was some force. It happened near the box office at the entrance to the Arena."
Emma Johnson said she and her husband were at the arena to pick up their daughters, aged 15 and 17.
"It was definitely a bomb. It was definitely in the foyer," she told BBC Radio Manchester.
"We were stood at the top of the stairs and the glass exploded - it was near to where they were selling the merchandise.
"The whole building shook. There was a blast and then a flash of fire afterwards. There were bodies everywhere."

The police activity around the arena has been huge. There are blue flashing lights and cordons seemingly on almost every street corner.
A wide area around the venue itself has been completely taped off, and the crime scene appears to be widening, with police pushing people further and further back.
I've spoken to people who are shaken, scared and often tearful. One thing that's apparent is there are many, many young people, some of them with parents or guardians. One mother told me her priority was simply to get her daughters home.
Other people have been more candid and have described seeing people covered in blood, or being treated by paramedics. There's still a huge sense of confusion and people are constantly searching for information while letting their families know they're safe.
Josh Elliott, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, said he was shocked by news of the fatalities.
"A bang went off and everyone stopped and screamed... we basically hit the deck," he said
"It was bedlam… it was horrific.
"We got up when we thought it was safe and got out as quickly as possible.
"People were just crying and in tears... police cars were everywhere.
"We just wanted to get out as quickly as possible because we didn't know what was going on."

Manchester Arena, formerly known as the MEN Arena, is the biggest indoor venue in the city with a capacity of around 18,000 for concerts.
The arena foyer connects with Victoria train and tram station, a major hub on the northern edge of the city centre.
The arena regularly hosts concerts by major stars like Ariana Grande - a 23-year-old American TV teen actress-turned-pop star.
She's a big draw for young fans, with hits including Problem, featuring Iggy Azalea, which hit number one in the UK in 2014; and Side To Side, featuring Nicki Minaj, which reached number four last year.
She's currently on a European tour - she's already played Birmingham and Dublin and is due to be at the O2 Arena in London on Wednesday and Thursday.
Michelle Sullivan, from Huddersfield, was attending the concert with her daughters, aged 12 and 15.
"It was really scary," she said. "Just as the lights have gone down we heard a really loud explosion... Everybody screamed.
"When we got out they just said 'keep on running, keep on running'."
Within an hour of reports of the incident emerging, people began offering spare rooms and beds to people stranded in the city using the hashtag #RoomForManchester.
Hundreds of tweets offering places to stay are being shared and re-tweeted thousands of times.
Pat Carney, Manchester City Council's spokesman for the city centre, said the city's thoughts were with the families of those killed and injured.
"It's a very easy target - a concert hall where young people are enjoying music," he said.
"The public are really co-operating by staying away from what is basically now a crime site.
"The world we live in, police and the council have emergency procedures that we practise all the time.
"Obviously everyone in the city is shocked, having seen how young some of these people are
"The police are treating it as a live site, we don't know if this is the end or there are other incidents in that area... we don't know at the moment."

Simple deport all those backward Primitive Moslem monkeys out of Europe and send them back to the deserts and jungles where they belong! They will never civilize in a industrial modern first world countries. Islam can only thrive in poor backward primitive countries, that is the third world.

What a fucking prick attacking young children, mainly teenage girls. An evil primitive shit. That's what Islam does to these weak minded low IQ animals.

Many Muslims are a bunch of sadistic scumbags.

Most Muslims are not, however.

My prediction was right, that the suspect was born in the UK, to Libyan parents who came here to flee Gaddafi's regime.  This always seems to be the case; someone relatively young who has grown up enjoying the privileges of western culture at some point develops an inexplicable grudge against it and allies themself with Islamic fundamentalists.  The problem for the UK, and France, is we have a massive population of Muslims who were born here, third or fourth generation by now. There are now a lot of "Islamic Schools" where they might be indoctrinated, but of course they deny it.

True, majority of Muslims aren't terrorist scumbags. Not sure about the percentage.

I've noticed that pattern as well. America and Canada have significant Muslim multigeneration populations as well. We should be on the lookout for younger western-born male muslims. But without necessarily profiling them.

Who cares in the end they need to be eliminated from Europe it's the only way. Do you really think even the non violent ones actually like western culture? No they are here to force their way of life on us and agree with the killings since it is taught in the koran. 


BTW father and brother have been arrested another disgusting terrorist scum family. I'm sick and tired of political correctness these fucking scumbags all of them need to be deported or eliminated.

Most need to be deported. Italy especially needs to guard her borders.

My condolences to the families of the victims of every religious denomination.


Generally speaking, I don't want Middle Easterners in Italy, period. I don't target Muslims. Christianized Arabs, such as Assyrians and Christian Lebanese, et cetera are just as genetically a liability.

19 killed at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, UK

^ Yeah, I don't see how non-Muslim Middle Easterners like Assyrians, Lebanese, or diasporan Iranians are much better.

As Augustus said, even if they are non-violent, they don't like western culture and in fact are trying to butcher it.
