Manchester will stand united this evening as plans are forged to stage a vigil for the victims and survivors of a terrorist bombing during a concert.
A vigil will take place this evening in Albert Square from 6 PM to pay tribute to the twenty-two killed at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. Manchester’s newly elected mayor, Andy Burnham confirmed the vigil when he spoke to the press earlier outside Manchester’s town hall.
Manchester Police confirmed that a bomb exploded at Manchester Arena. Twenty-two people were killed after a blast ripped through Manchester Arena foyer the end of the concert. Up to 21,000 fans were in attendance of the concert.
At around 10:3o/33 PM as Ariana Grande had finished her concert, thousands of people were streaming out of the concert venue when the bomb was detonated. Police confirm the bomber was killed by his own explosion.
Witnesses say that the bomb went off outside the auditorium.
