One year after the horrendous attack at Manchester Arena, the city commemorates those who lost their lives.
Rob, Rachel and Wingman are here to wake you up from 6AM on the 1 year anniversary of the Manchester Arena attack and to show you exactly why the city is known for its resilience, strength and unity. We'll be talking to the people of Manchester and reflecting on the past 12 months since 22 people were tragically killed in an attack at an Ariana Grande concert

Across Manchester, members of the public have been hanging their tributes on the 22 Trees of Hope for the 22 victims of the attack.
In the Capital studio we had two incredible guests join Rob, Rachel and Wingman including the super cute 8 year old Maddie who shared a poem with the city...
Aww, we can't get over how cute little Maddie is! Her words a year ago meant so much to the city & her poem is even sweeter https://t.co/3Fn3gvOmX0 pic.twitter.com/vnn5gy8QJf— Capital Manchester (@CapitalManc) May 22, 2018
To say she made the whole city smile with her words would be an understatement:
