This post will be updated as more news comes in.
Police have confirmed that 22 are dead and at least 60 injured.
The explosion was the work they believe of a single suicide bomber who used bolts and nuts as shrapnel.
The major parties have suspended campaigning.
Salman Abedi was named by police as the suspected suicide bomber who killed 22 people and injured 59 at Manchester Arena on Monday night. He was born in Manchester from a family of Libyan origin.
So far three victims have been named, Saffie Rose Roussos aged 8, Georgina Callander and John Atkinson, 28.
A beautiful response from a local.
