‘At least twenty two concert-goers were killed last night and 59 injured in what was being treated as a terror attack when an explosion hit the Manchester Arena at the end of a pop show.
Witnesses described hearing a huge bang shortly after 10.30pm at the entrance to the Arena as thousands of people made their way out of a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande.
Police were last night reportedly looking into the possibility a suicide bomber had carried out deadly attack, but there was no official confirmation.
Some witnesses described seeing smoke and smelling burning in the foyer area of the Manchester Arena, others said they had seen nails on the floor.
Theresa May, the Prime Minister, suspended her General Election campaign in the wake of the apparent terror attack and there will be an emergency Cobra meeting at 9am this morning.’
