News

It's been confirmed children are among 22 people killed in a suicide bombing outside Manchester Arena.

The blast last night has also left 59 injured - with eight hospitals in the area looking after the wounded.

Mansfield's Executive Mayor Kate Allsop was raised in the city, "It's absolutely devastating, whoever has done this is wicked, absolutely wicked. Children, young people, young families, it's devastating. I send all my condolences and love back to Manchester and say this is dreadful, shouldn't happen and for the families greiving all love is sent to them"

Mayor Allsop added, "Acts of kindness have been typical of Mancunian people, going out and taking drinks to people who are shocked and dazed, helping people to get home, taxi drivers taking people home not charging them. What a wonderful country we live in, when people rally round like that."

Mayor Allsop finished by saying, "What a dreadful, dreadful day for Manchester, what a dreadful day for humanity."

Relatives are using social media to hunt for missing loved ones.

Police have set up an emergency telephone number in response to the attack. It is: 0161 856 9400.
