I know where Adam is and I know that Olivia isn’t with him.

She had her phone with her but it’s dead, I don’t know whether she’s lost it in the stampede to get out of there, but she knows by number off by heart so I know she can contact me if she’s able to.

So far, only three people to have been confirmed dead in the blast have been named and many of the fatalities are thought to be under the age of 18.

These include 26-year-old John Atkinson, eight-year-old Saffie Rose Sousass and 18-year-old Georgina Callander. 

The blast went off shortly after the popstar finished her set, tearing through the foyer of the arena, separating families and claiming many victims.

Shortly after, authorities conducted a controlled explosion of an unknown package at Cathedral Gardens in the city centre, but it was later discovered to be abandoned clothing.

Manchester Victoria Station was then on lockdown, with all trains and trams coming to a halt and cancellations continuing into Tuesday.

Horrific footage emerged from the scene last night, showing people covered in blood and trying to escape as devastation wreaked through the arena.

The suicide bomber – who died at the scene – has now been identified as 23-year-old Salman Abedi, who detonated his homemade explosive device, killing himself and many others in the process.

Greater Manchester Police issued a statement earlier, condemning the killer’s actions and sharing a message of condolence to the families of the loved ones who fell victim to the attack and who are still missing.

Police are encouraging anyone with images from the scene to email it to: or upload it to

Anyone with any information regarding the attacks are urged to call the terrorist hotline on: 0800 789 321.

Thoughts are with everyone affected and the families of the victims at this horrendous and difficult time.
