At least 22 people have been killed and 59 injured after a suspected terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena.
Thousands of gig-goers were packed into the venue to see American singer Ariana Grande when two explosions were reported.
Multiple witnesses reported hearing two “huge bangs” at the venue shortly after US singer’s gig finished at around 10.30pm on Monday evening.
The area around the arena was swamped with police and emergency services and approach roads were cordoned off.
Minutes later eyewitnesses described seeing people “running and screaming” from the arena, with some covered in blood.
The incident is now being treated as a terrorist attack.
Swarms of armed police were joined by a bomb disposal unit as teams from across the region worked to secure the area and help the injured.
