Just a quick update but they are saying it was only one blast not several as early reports indicated. Patients are being treated with 'shrapnel ' type wounds. There are a lot of young girls and boys at the concert.

They reckon it is terrorist related and bomb squads are in attendance. Where the pop concert is, is extremely close to a railway station which has been closed. The explosion, some attendees suggest, was on the main entrance to the arena and the bang/'bomb' went off just as people were leaving the concert.

Manchester Police say 19 dead according to Sky news.

And very very sorry for double post MODs.

^^No worries.  For dire situations such as this, and with so many of our members in this country, that rule does not apply.

My deepest sorrow at hearing this and sending many many prayers for the good people of Manchester and beyond.  We're hearing terrorism over here in the US.  B@stards.

A loved one of mine was policing an area of Manchester this evening. I'm guessing they won't be home now till morning. At least they're coming home.

^That's much too close to home, isn't it?  I'm so sorry but very glad to hear that they are indeed coming home.   hug

I am so sad and all these people dead may be young woman with all their lives to live.

I had hoped when I went to bed that it was a false alarm but no.

They were pipe bombs loaded with nails; this was a terror attack all right.

Just read how the people of Manchester opened their hearts and their homes to survivors and family members.  God bless all of you for the love and compassion you showed to the world in the aftermath of this tragedy.
