Many people in the UK woke up to the shocking news that a terror attack had taken place at Manchester Arena last night as fans departed the venue after Ariana Grande performed on stage.

The US star has already performed in Birmingham and Dublin as part of her European tour. Ariana is also due to make two appearances at London‘s O2 venue on Thursday and Friday, however this looks very unlikely in the aftermath of last night’s events.

There have been 22 people left dead by this horrific attack and a further 59 people are still being treating for their injuries, after a bomb exploded in the foyer of Manchester’s Arena.

Ariana tweeted “From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry.” at 4am with her manager Scooter Braun released the following statement on behalf of the star and her team: “Tonight, our hearts are broken. Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack. We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester’s first responders who rushed towards danger to help save lives. We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.

UKSU would like to send our sincere condolences to those who have lost loved ones in last night’s attack. We also hope those still missing are found soon and more importantly safely.
