Salman Abedi

Every father knows his son and his thoughts, my son does not have extremist thoughts ... We don't believe in killing innocents. This is not us.feedback

Salman Abedi

We don't believe in killing innocents. This is not us. We aren't the ones who blow up ourselves among innocents. We go to mosques. We recite Quran, but not that. There was nothing worrying at all until two days ago (when) I heard the news that they suspect he was the bomber.feedback

Miley Cyrus

I'd like to dedicate this song to my good friend Ariana Grande, and everyone who experienced that horrific attack yesterday. Our hearts are with you. Wishing I could give my friend @arianagrande a great big hug right now. Love love love you ... so sorry you had to be apart [sic] of such a tragic event! my most sincere condolences to anyone and everyone affected by this horrific attack! all I can do is send as much HOPE & PEACE your way! This MUST end! No more war ... no more innocent lives taken ... L-O-V-E.feedback

Mounir Hakimi

I never expected that I would be treating patients who have the same injuries that I saw in Syria. I never thought I would experience a terror attack so close to my house. I never thought it would be close to my family and my kids. It does make me anxious about my wife and kids. The people carrying out these attacks do not represent my Muslim community, my family or me.feedback

Mounir Hakimi

The other difference is that the staff to not have the same level of equipment and they do not have the same skills because it's in a war zone.feedback

Jon Rouse

We are now treating 64 individuals ... of those approximately 20 are receiving critical care, that means very urgent care. There is damage to major organs, major injuries in terms of limbs and some of these individuals are going to need very long term care and support. These are highly traumatic injuries.feedback

Donna Lightfoot

I am totally heartbroken for you. I had hoped and prayed that Olivia would be found alive and well, my thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time... RIP beautiful Angel, taken far to soon.feedback

Elena Semino

My husband and I were standing against the wall, luckily, and all of a sudden there was this thing. I can't even describe it. There was this heat on my neck and when I looked up there were bodies everywhere.feedback

Paul Robinson

People were just running out and running in every direction. There were a lot of children and they were shouting for their dads [who] must have been picking them up. I just went over, got hold of them, and me and my husband just said, Come with us, we'll ring your dad, let's just get safe. I was just shouting to people to make their way there, if you can't find your mom and dad. I didn't do it as a hero, please, I feel ridiculous. I just did it because that's what I was doing … I just did it instinctively … I didn't have a plan.feedback

Paul Robinson

There was an almighty bang, the loudest I've ever heard, and a flash. There were bodies everywhere, then a deathly silence. And then people crying and moaning and screaming. I was screaming, My babies, my babies.' I didn't know what to do.feedback

Paul Robinson

I do know that one of the parents I spoke to … their little girl isn't OK.feedback

Helen McDermott

Weʼre raising £3,000 to help fund a beautiful send off for Megan who was taken far too early due to the awful attacks at Manchester Evening News Arena on 22/05/2017. After such a heartbreaking event where many were killed and injured through such a horrendous act of violence we can do little more than pray for the families who have suffered and hope we are never subject to the pain they must be feeling! RIP to Megan and every other victim.feedback

David Leavitt

MULTIPLE CONFIRMED FATALITIES at Manchester Arena. The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too. Honestly, for over a year I thought an Ariana Grande was something you ordered at Starbucks.feedback

Salman Abedi

I was really shocked when I saw the news, I still don't believe it. He was always against those attacks, saying there's no religious justification for them. I don't understand how he'd have become involved in an attack that led to the killing of children.feedback

Salman Abedi

There is only one God and the prophet Mohammed is his messenger. We don't believe in killing innocents. This is not us. We aren't the ones who blow up ourselves among innocents. We go to mosques. We recite Quran, but not that.feedback

Ian Harratt

In the wake of the atrocities that happened at the Manchester Arena, this man thought it was acceptable to deface and set fire to a local mosque.feedback

Salman Abedi

This group was fighting Gaddafi in the mid-90s in the eastern side of Libya. The group were defeated in 1996. It was a group that wanted to overthrow Gaddafi but they also possibly had some guys who were affiliated with al-Qaida. Did some of these guys carry the torch of al-Qaida? Possibly.feedback

Salman Abedi

He was a normal, straightforward, likable guy. He would sometimes lead the prayer, too. He was obviously religious but nothing out of the ordinary.feedback

Salman Abedi

My son was as religious as any child who opens his eyes in a religious family. As we were discussing news of similar attacks earlier, he was always against those attacks, saying there's no religious justification for them. I don't understand how he'd have become involved in an attack that led to the killing of children. Until now my son is a suspect, and the authorities haven't come up with a final conclusion. Every father knows his son and his thoughts, my son does not have extremist thoughts.feedback

Chris Parker

Just because I am homeless doesn't mean I haven't got a heart or I'm not human still. I'd like to think someone would come and help me if I needed the help. It was children. It was a lot of children with blood all over them and crying and screaming. She was in her 60s and she had been with her family. I haven't stopped crying. The most shocking part of it is that it was a kids' concert.feedback

Nicola Murray

Within seconds, as you can imagine, it was chaos and people were panicking and running to try and get out the door. We were getting swept with the people crushing to get out and I was terrified my daughter would get crushed. At one point, she was getting dragged away from me but I managed to pull her into me and force her in front of me while trying to direct her to the door and down the steps.feedback

Carole Taylor

When it exploded, it just rocked your whole body. It went right through us. People started screaming.feedback

Victoria Monet

I wish I could say that I am OK, but I am not. Please send all your prayers up high for Manchester.feedback

Stephen Jones

I then realized what was happening and saw children coming out, screaming and covered in blood. We were having to pull nails out of their arms and stuff and a couple out of this little girl's face. I wouldn't have been able to live with myself for walking away and leaving kids like that. Just because I'm homeless doesn't mean that I haven't got a heart and I'm not human still. They needed help and I like to think that someone would come and help me if I needed the help. It's just instinct to go and help if someone needs your help.feedback

Andy Burnham

They responded in the best possible way with generosity, with kindness, that was I think humbling. In this darkest hour - every single person in greater Manchester will be proud that people responded in that particular way and I'd like to thank them for doing that.feedback

Kim Dick

There was a massive blast and when we got up there was a little girl, she was 14. Her long blonde hair was shrivelled up, singed, a plastic bag had melted in her hair. Her eyes were staring up and I lifted her up and her little arms were broken. She had shrapnel in both her legs, her shoulder and her face.feedback

Kim Dick

We made makeshift compressions to press on her wounds on her legs and shoulder. She asked me if she was going to be okay and I said you are, your dad is coming. Her eyes were staring ahead.feedback

Sameer Arshad - Street Cars

We had a lot of terrified parents ringing up, and a lot of terrified people ringing up and everyone was trying to get safe, so I reached out to our drivers and said 'these people need us' and they said they were willing to do whatever it takes to get people home safely. That's when we decided to give anyone who was stranded in Manchester a free taxi to wherever they need to get to, and their families. You can either pull away or pull together and at times like this you need to pull together.feedback

Kim Dick

There was another girl 15 she was crying and had been hit in the leg. There was an Asian girl called Aaliyah. She was 15 years old. I said for her to sit down, I just wanted to hug her but I couldn't leave the other girl.feedback

Craig Rowe

Even with all the training, nothing can prepare you for knowing a bomb is near you. They think the bomber only targeted the entrance and exit point because he feared he would be sussed otherwise if he tried to go any further in. Armed police were everywhere and they came running into the station, I think they feared there was another one here. Everything was shut down and the emergency code was activated. They did a sweep but nothing was found.feedback

Craig Rowe

I was back in this morning and I have to say I am so proud of how this city has got back on its feet. Manchester is a strong city and although it is awful, it has brought people together. People won't let these idiots stop us. I'm proud to be British on days like today.feedback

Elliot Smorger

He helped me then ran back in to get others. I was treated for a shrapnel wound in the end when I was checked over a short while after but I knew I was being picked up and I didn't want my mum going near it so I just wanted to get to her.feedback

Elliot Smorger

It was so strong it blew people backwards, . I had no idea what was going on and just covered my head. It was so scary. I just looked to see if my friends were OK. I know now how lucky we were. If we were just seconds ahead of where we were, we could have been killed. Security came over and someone walked me out and he was amazing. I didn't even get his name but he didn't run away from it, he ran into it to help us. It is just his job but he risked his life to run towards the blast.feedback

Elliot Smorger

I noticed I was bleeding but it was weird because it didn't even hurt. I could just hear the horrible screams and I knew something bad had happened.feedback

Nicola Murray

To be honest I felt numb rather than scared. I [had] just focused on getting my daughter to safety. It's only now that the severity of the event has started to sink in.feedback

Brian Hopkins - Forrester Research

There remains a large cordon in place around Manchester Arena and Victoria Train Station which will be in place for some time. The station will remain closed while a detailed forensic search is underway. People should plan their route to work and follow Transport for Greater Manchester for updates on social media. Terrorists attempt to disrupt our lives and create distrust and fear in communities. We have a long history in Greater Manchester of communities standing together during difficult times. In the coming days we will be working closely with community leaders to address any issues.feedback

Carole Taylor

You were scared, we were all scared. We just grabbed their hands and ran, ran, ran. We didn't stop running until we go out down the stairs, round the corner. We had to get out of there really quickly.feedback

Anthony Fisher

I would say people have woken up to a very horrified city. It's not something that we're used to. But … people are reaching out, still reaching out, to see if they can help in any way, which is fantastic.feedback

Anthony Fisher

Manchester will always bounce back. Just look at this place. It was wrecked 20 years ago with the IRA bomb. It bounced back then and it will bounce back again.feedback

Sam Arshad

Whatever you want, gaffer, we're there for you. At the end of the day, every religion, every culture, you always have bad apples and unfortunately in our religion you have the same. But you can't group us all in one group … tonight showed, from us, it showed that we're not that kind of people. We're the opposite.feedback

Carole Taylor

The hotel we were staying at were taking people in, they were opening the bar up, giving people drinks … we felt really safe.feedback

Sam Arshad

I was stuck in traffic and that's when I saw people rushing out. I spoke to a police officer and he told me there had been an explosion and that we needed to evacuate the area. The audience was a very young audience and some people had come from far away, expecting to be picked up by their parents. It came down to parents ringing us trying to get their kids home to them safely.feedback

Carole Taylor

To think somebody's actually targeted that is absolutely disgusting. Awful. I can't even get my head around it to be honest. I feel so, so sad.feedback

James Corden

It's famous all over the world for so many wonderful things - great football teams, Man City, Man United. It's famous for incredible music - Oasis and Joy Division. It was the birthplace of the leader of the Suffragettes. It's the home of the inventor of the first computer. It's a place full of comedy and character. But when I think of Manchester, the place that I know, I think of the spirit of the people there - and I'm telling you, a more tight-knit group of people you will be hard pressed to find. Strong, proud, caring people, with community at its core.feedback

Charlotte Campbell

I can't get through to her. There's no news, I've just got to wait.... I'm waiting at home just in case she turns up here. If anybody sees Olivia lend her your phone – she knows my number.feedback

Demi Lovato

Tearing up imagining innocent concert goers losing their lives.. praying for everyone and all #arianators … My prayers are with you Manchester (sic).feedback

Salman Abedi

We don't believe in killing innocents. This is not us. We aren't the ones who blow up ourselves among innocents. We go to mosques. We recite Qur'an, but not that.feedback

Chris Parker

I saw a little girl … she had no legs. I wrapped her in one of the merchandise T-shirts and I said, Where is your mum and daddy?' She said, My dad is at work, my mum is up there'. She passed away in my arms. She was in her 60s and said she had been with her family. I haven't stopped crying. The most shocking part of it is that it was a kids' concert. There were nuts and bolts all over the floor. People had holes in their back. It's the screams I can't get over and the smell … I don't like to say it but it smelled like burning flesh. I don't think anything has sunk in yet. It's just shock.feedback

Neville Edwards

There was a lot of police activity and the avenue was cordoned off. There was a controlled hard entry by the police who blew the front door off using controlled explosives.feedback

Tina Ward

They seem to be quiet. I've been in my house 10 years and they've been there longer than me.feedback

Neville Edwards

She felt the ground beneath her shake. She was absolutely terrified.feedback

Rosemary Ward

I was supposed to go into town but I'm not going to now. People are crying because they want to get their kids out of school.feedback

Rosemary Ward

We heard that 22 people had been arrested in a house down there. I live right around the corner. I'm just worried about my child.feedback

Rosemary Ward

There was a big bang and the whole house shook. I just picked my child up - she was screaming. Everyone started running out of their houses. It was scary. There were lots of police here already - they had machine guns.feedback

James Corden

And I'm telling you, a more tight-knit group of people, you will be hard-pressed to find. Strong, proud, caring people with community at its core. If it was even possible, the spirit of the people of Manchester will grow even stronger this evening. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Manchester tonight, all of the staff in the MEN Arena, all of the security teams, all of the emergency services, Ariana and her team, and all of those families affected by tonight.feedback

David Walker

You will be part of how we together respond to last night, how we together repair the damage, rebuild what's destroyed and and go forward as the fantastic, diverse community we are.feedback

David Walker

And at a local level within communities in Manchester there's good relations between the mosques, the synagogues, the temples and different faith communities and those with no faith at all. We will keep those channels of communication open and particularly reach out to anyone who might be vilified as a result of last night.feedback

David Walker

My message to the Muslim community is: you are one with us. Just as you were yesterday, you are one with us. Part of us. A vital part of us. You will go on being a vital part of us. Already this morning, when I first made a comment on social media, the trolls were up and about and presenting their malign influence. But they are a very tiny minority and one we need to isolate in this.feedback

David Walker

[This is] how we respond to atrocities. We open our hearts. That's often the immediate response. The challenge is to make that a long lasting response. There's always after an event like last night a tendency to create blame by association. And so we must make clear that is not the way we behave of react. The guilt for last night belong to the perpetrators and the perpetrators alone. It doesn't go beyond them.feedback

David Walker

Most of us are good at distinguishing what is the truth in this. We know, again and again, a little phrase: love wins.feedback

David Walker

I chair a meeting of all the faith leaders from Greater Manchester. We know each other very well, we're very used to coming together and sharing with one another at a very deep level. We all have the interests of the city and one another at heart. We're united.feedback

Charlotte Campbell

All I know is she was at the Manchester Arena with her friend watching Ariana Grande and she's not turned up yet. I can't get through to her. I've called the hospitals, I've called all the places, the hotels where people say that children have been taken. I've called the police. There's no news, I've just got to wait. I'm waiting at home just in case she turns up here. She was with her friend Adam - Adam was found about half an hour ago, he's in hospital but Olivia has not been found yet.feedback

Mike Stredder

We are responding to last night's events in Manchester. Our thoughts are with the people affected by this tragic incident. We do have all the blood required for hospital patients at the present time; however, we are always keen to encourage new donors to register and existing donors to book an appointment which can be done at Blood.co.uk or call 0300 123 23 23 to find your nearest session. If you have an appointment to give blood in the next few days, please do your best to keep it, particularly if you are blood group O negative.feedback
