Lots of footage on social media. Confusion whether it's a bomb or gunfire or some other explosion. 'At least two loud bangs.'

Some suggestion that a speaker 'exploded' and the casualties were caused in a subsequent 'stampede' of people trying to exit the area.

Whatever the truth it's a dreadful incident....

Looks like a further incident for the police to deal with on what has already been an awful night for them to cope with.

**Royal Oldham Hospital**

On lockdown with a man armed with a gun outside A&E!!

**UPDATE 00.45**
Police on site to deal with this. Staff and patients moved away from windows for safety.

What is happening this evening!!!

Live just a few minutes away from the Arena and having been to a show in town myself tonight had to walk past on the way home earlier, terrifying scenes with young teens in tears, in some cases with blood on their clothes, trying desperately to contact friends/family members. There's still a steady stream of ambulances heading towards there now.

Thoughts go out to all of the families affected, absolutely horrible. Manchester will not forget them.

The gardens were closed off as we walked by. They're now saying it wasn't a bomb but some discarded clothing.

"Medieval Monsters" is probably the best description ive heard for these cowards,who on the planet can justifiably target children at a concert.
You just wonder at what point does the country begin to wake up to these shit house's and deal with them properly

Utterly despicable act.

Fortunately the show overran it seems, otherwise casualties could have been much worse.

Absolutely horrible news. Thoughts are with those who have lost their lives, been injured, or are personally affected by this.

Who targets children at a concert? People who are absolutely sick in the head, that's who. They can rot in hell. They will never ever 'win'.

Apparently this wasn't true. I know Buzzfeed isn't the most reliable source, but if their article is true, there's some real low-lives about (as if that needed confirming after last night).

Who knows what is true any more. The world has gone very, very wrong.

It's been confirmed as a suicide bomber not a timed device. Absolutely sick what these scumbags are prepared to do. Just so desperately sad.

Indeed, I saw that. The speculation was along he lines that had the show finished as scheduled, the exits would have been much more packed at the time of the explosion and more fatalities would have ensued, but that theory pre-supposes the killer knew what time the show was due to finish. Seems a tad unlikely. Common sense suggests that the perpetrator would just wait until the area was at its busiest and detonate, unless he/she was worried about hanging around looking suspicious whilst probably wearing plenty of clothes on a warm night. I don't suppose every detail will be established exactly or even released to the public for operational reasons, but it certainly could have been 10 times worse from what an eye witness was suggesting.

Couldn't agree more as to how sick this act was and whilst no loss of life is ever acceptable, to target the demographic of that concert beggars belief. Reminiscent of the low-life who targeted the kids on the Norwegian island but not as many fatalities. The sad thing is there is virtually no way to stop a single, deluded individual acting in isolation like this if they don't leave a communication trail. Utterly senseless. An immensely sad day as you say.

There seems to be something going on in the city centre right now. I work a mile away from the Arena and the Helicopter is circulating overhead and a few sirens have been heard in the distance in the last few minutes.

There is a good chance that the person responsible will turn out to be known by the anti-terrorist police.

They said earlier this morning that they know who he is, but won't reveal his identity at this stage for operational reasons.

Shortly after that statement a 24 year old man was arrested at an address in South Manchester in connection with the enquiry.
