    Explosion at Ariana Grande concert in Manchester

    Cause unknown, but police have confirmed there are fatalities and serious injuries. This is very very bad

    Yeah mixed reports coming through, some saying a gunshot, some saying a bomb, some saying equipment malfunction.

    Concert would have been full of kids just trying to enjoy themselves, heartbreaking this.

    You want to know wtf is going on, but in so many ways instant news/ social media makes it harder to work out than before. It actually sort of makes me a bit jittery/ jumpy about stuff like this, because you refresh a feed to see what's going on , and it's basically a million people not having a ****ing clue and speculating on all sorts of things from bombs to shootings to equipment failure etc.

    Sadly, what seems to be the case is 20 or more young people dead, according to some new organisations anyway.

    Police confirm it was a bomb, at least 19 dead. Seeing people on facebook who were there discussing it, apparently absolute carnage. Set off in the foyer, right by the merch stand, just as everyone pours out after the gig - no doubt aiming for maximum carnage.

    Another bomb has been found and blown up by the cops by Urbis, so was clearly looking to get those walking down Deansgate afterwards (That ones probably about 100 yards from the site of the 1996 bombing, on the same street....), though the 4th explosion turned out to be a controlled detonation of what was a bag of tramps clothes...


    Been watching and listening to the copper choppers shooting around all night, I'm just around the corner from their base, seen a few shooting off following the canal down out of town, so I think they are getting people out to hospitals that can take them towards Liverpool way as all ours are on full alert - Its telling that none of my doctor/nurse friends are talking about it on Facebook tonight, they've all just dropped everything and shot off to work. Probably in for the worst night of their lives


    I'm dreading work tomorrow, its a very young office ours, so there's a reality that some of my floor will have been there, so.... yeah.....

    Terrible stuff mate.

    There were some reports going around earlier that Oldham Hospital was in lock down because of reports of someone there with a gun, but tbf I haven't seen any reports on that from more established news sites like the BBBC or Guardian.

    Take care mate.

    It was dismissed by the police, looks like the report came from someone on facebook who was either mistaken or terrible.

    Absolutely horrifying news. Felt sick to the pit of my stomach when I read it on the way to work in the morning, knowing that perhaps some CWers might have been affected. Take care, cpr... and everyone else.

    I'm going to struggle to concentrate on work today.

    It's weird how I wasn't very surprised when I first heard the news. Only now after a couple hours, I am feeling the horror and anger I usually do.

    Yesterday, I was watching the Escobar documentary The Two Escobars where some one remarked that you cannot really separate football from the world around it. The same goes for Europe. Such attacks are only going to increase as the world keeps getting more ****ed up. So sad.
