Police say a 23-year-old man's been arrested in connection with the Manchester Arena bomb attack.

22 people, including children, died as they left Ariana Grande's concert last night.

59 other people were injured - with some children needing surgery this morning.

So-called Islamic State's claimed one of its soldiers had 'placed bombs among the crowds'.

The Prime Minister says Manchester's fallen victim to a "callous terrorist attack" - she held an emergency government Cobra meeting this morning.

The first victim's been named as college student Georgina Callander.

The Queen says the whole nation has been shocked by the death and injury.

A vigil will be held in the Manchester's Albert Square at 6pm this evening.
