    Manchester 'explosions': A 'number of fatalities' reported following Ariana Grande concert
    Confusion over what caused reported 'explosion sounds' at the venue as thousands 'seen 'fleeing in tears' and 'covered in blood'

    There are a number of confirmed deaths at Manchester Arena following a reported explosion at an Ariana Grande concert, police have said.

    Twitter users reported thousands of concert goers fled the arena covered in blood and crying, although it is not immediately clear what the reported "loud bangs" were.

    The noises were heard towards the end of the show, with witnesses claiming on social media they believed the bangs were a "gun shot" or a "bomb".

    Confirmed fatalities after incident at Ariana Grande concert

    "Two loud bangs" were reported at approximately 10:45 p.m., just after the concert had finished. The cause of the blasts was not immediately confirmed.

    A spokesman said Grande, who was performing at the arena as part of her "Dangerous Woman" world tour, was "okay" and added, "we are further investigating what happened."

    Witnesses described panic as concertgoers rushed to get out of the arena. Video from inside the arena showed people screaming as they made their way out amid a sea of pink balloons. Some on social media initially suggested that some of the ballons had burst, making a loud noise like a bomb.

    Concertgoer Sasina Akhtar told the Manchester Evening News that Grande had just finished her last song when "there was an explosion behind us at the back of the arena. We saw young girls with blood on them, everyone was screaming and people were running. There was lots of smoke."

    David Richardson, who attended the show with his 13-year-old daughter, told the MEN that he heard two explosions just after the show.

    "It was about 40 feet behind us near one of the exits. We just thought it was people messing about then it happened again. Another explosion sounded. Then we saw the smoke. Everyone just fled."

    Up to this point, they're not sure what caused the explosion. It occurred right after the concert ended and the lights went on. It could have been electrical.


    ETA, now they're saying their attention is on the foyer. (live broadcast)
    Sky News is reporting to FOX that there is a bomb truck there. But no reports of exactly what exploded.

    At least 22 people, including children, have been killed and 59 injured in a suicide bombing at a crowded pop concert in Manchester, the most deadly attack in Britain in a decade.

    The horror unfolded at about 10.30pm on Monday at the end of a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande, whose music is popular with children and teenagers.

    The attack, which took place in the foyer area of the arena, left hundreds of people fleeing in terror, with young people at the concert separated from their parents in the chaos. It left carnage inside the concert venue, with medics describing treating wounds consistent with shrapnel injury.

    there are lots of photos of missing children being shared on social media

    and several local hotels have lots of kids that are missing there parents

    :praying: for all involved
