    Friends of Mr Atkinson have also set up a fundraising page to help his family.

    "John tragically lost his life last night (22/05/17) in the Manchester men bomb attack... John was one in a million and loved by so many!!

    "A true gentleman. R.I.P John thoughts and prayers with you family and all of the other victims effected by this tragedy," it says.

    Sixty ambulances went to Manchester Arena after the attack, which took place in the venue's foyer at the end of gig, and those wounded are being treated at eight hospitals around the city.

    Relatives of other concert-goers are using social media to hunt for missing loved ones, and an emergency number - 0800 096 0095 - has been set up.

    Manchester Arena attack: Scots girl still missing

    A 14-year-old remains missing after the suicide attack at Manchester Arena which claimed the lives of 22 people.

    Eilidh MacLeod, from the Isle of Barra, has not been seen since the Monday night's attack.

    Her friend Laura MacIntyre, 15, is in hospital with serious injuries.

    Angus MacNeil, the former Western Isles MP, who knows the families of both girls, said that Laura's injuries would suggest she had not been far from the bomber.

    Both girls' parents have flown to Manchester.

    'Shock and disbelief'
    Mr MacNeil told the BBC on Tuesday: "Laura is in hospital. She's alive, she's in a serious condition. We are still very worried for her, of course, the whole island is worried.

    Homeless hero helps concert attack victims

    Stephen Jones, a homeless man who was outside the Manchester Arena when Monday's deadly attack took place, is being hailed as a hero after he helped the wounded as they fled the scene.
    "First there was a bang, I thought it was some kind of firework, and then there was a big explosion," he told CNN affiliate ITN.
    "I just felt the wind force, and then everyone started screaming and running. Me and my mate we got up and we started running. We realized what had happened, we run back, and all the women and children were coming out with blood."

    I'm not making light of this tragedy, but this is what probably awaits the suicide bomber.

    The imam of the Mosque attended by Manchester Salman Abedi has revealed the suicide bomber looked at him 'with hate' when he gave a sermon criticising ISIS.

    It comes as neighbours of the British-born Manchester United fan described his 'strange behaviour' in the weeks before he slaughtered 22 people.

    The 22-year-old attacker, as an abrasive, tall, skinny young man who was often seen in traditional Islamic clothing according to neighbours, was heard 'chanting prayers loudly in the street' outside his home (more)

    Isn't that crazy?

    As in all these horrors, when we begin to see victims' faces & hear their stories, how could anyone shrug it off as the new normal?

    Pop star Ariana Grande has suspended her "Dangerous Woman" tour in the wake of a terror attack following her concert in Manchester that left 22 people dead, a source with knowledge of the situation told CNN.
    The decision came less than one day after the explosion at the concert, which occurred after Grande had finished performing. 22 people were killed and 59 injured, including children.

    ISIS has claimed responsibility.

    Grande expressed her sorrow in the hours following the incident.

    "Broken," the singer tweeted. "From the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words."

    Manchester attack: Vigil finds city defiant in the face of terror
    Less than 24 hours after the worst terrorist attack in Manchester's history, its people came together to remember the 22 victims who went to enjoy one of the city's favourite pastimes - going to a gig - but never came home.

    Basked in early evening sunshine, the mood in Albert Square was sombre but strong. Manchester is a city of glorious, rebellious positivity and thousands were here to make that point in front of the cameras of the world's press.

    It's heartening to hear the imam speak out publicly like this. I hope he is joined by others, both in the mosques and in the press. We all need to do a lot interfaith reaching out.

    School pupil Nell Jones, 14, from Cheshire, died in the attack, Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School has said.

    Head teacher Denis Oliver said the student's family had "been searching for her since the incident in the hope that they would find her being cared for in hospital".

    Her form tutor David Wheeler said that she was a "popular girl, always smiling", adding: "Her tutor group have been together since the transition from primary school.

    "It feels like they have lost a sister not a classmate."
