Apparently there are casualties.  Unsure of whether a gunshot, explosion or a speaker blowing up.  From the mess on the first pic it lookd more than a speaker or a gun shot

The first pic is inside the men? 

How would a speaker cause all that?

Looks like bodies all over especially the one dressed in all white...

Jonathan Yates, who attended the gig, said: 'As the Ariana Grande concert finished there bangs like gunshots - it was terrifying so many people running and crying.' 


There were thousands of people trying to get out at once. They were all screaming and crying. The whole place smelt smokey and burnt.

Hopefully it is a speaker and the people on the floor are from trying to get out and are okay.  My mate is there with his daughter. Her first gig.

Ffs.  Apparently witness report sing one went off and everyone went running in one direction and another went off in the direction they was running in. 

The first picture i posted is a fake apparently. It's from a training exercise a few years ago.

Witness on the Beeb said the explosion was where the box office is. 

The force was that big it threw him back through some doors.

He said he saw around 20/30 people on the floor not moving.

NHS sources are saying the explosion at Manchester Arena was a nail bomb attack. Still unconfirmed.

Tinned Toms - You know it makes sense!
Absolutely devastating what's happened and like everyone else, thoughts are with those affected. 

Some of the stuff I've seen on social media today though worries me. 

Quote from someone I know on Facebook - "I agree with trump now. We should just bomb the shit out of Syria. Enough is enough now." 

Obviously this sort of attack brings out the best of people as Manchester has shown but it also brings out the worst. You don't need to be the sharpest knife in the drawer to see what's wrong with that statement so I won't bother explaining it but it just shows the idiotic mentality of some people.

Uk security and terrorism expert: He says the problem is not just a security issue, but also a political, cultural, ideological and mental health one. 


How to combat all these problems before many other atrocities occur into the future?

Bloody terrible. This one hits home more than any other attack because it's so close to where we live/work.

I can't imagine what it's like to be a parent of a missing child right now. My heart goes out to them.
