Thousands of people have gathered in Manchester's Albert Square this evening for a vigil. 

It's to remember the victims who lost their lives at an Ariana Grande concert at the MEN Arena. 

A suicide bomber detonated a device as fans were exiting the venue. 

22 people have been killed and 59 remain injured in hospital, with some being treated for life threatening injuries. 

People have been live tweeting from outside the Town Hall. 







The suspect behind last night's terror attack has been named by police was 22 year old Salman Abedi. 

The Islamic State group has claimed that it was behind the attack.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has described it as 'callous' and 'sickening.'

A centre has been set up at the Ethiad Stadium, and is offering support to families who are missing their loved ones. 

A man's been arrested and two properties have been searched by police investigating last night's attack.
