10.30pm Show’s scheduled finish. Thousands of fans begin to file out of the arena’s four exits.

A “huge bomb-like bang” is heard at the arena. Witnesses describe being knocked from their feet by an explosion and seeing dozens of injured, possibly dead, people including children lying on the floor. Others describe panic as concert-goers run for exits.

10.35pm: Greater Manchester Police (GMP) are called to reports of an explosion at Manchester Arena. Dozens of emergency services vehicles stream into the area.

2.15am Prime Minister Theresa May says her thoughts are with the victims and families of those affected in “what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack”.

3.04am Chief Constable Ian Hopkins, Greater Manchester Police, says: “My thoughts are very much with those who have been injured and lost their lives. We are currently treating this as a terrorist incident until we have further information. This is clearly a very concerning time for everyone.
I want to thank people for their support and ask them to remain vigilant.”

I just can't fathom why someone created by God, in his right mind would think bombing and killing people would guarantee him virgins in heaven. It all boils down to your di*k. Usesless motherfuckers. I pray for those people, May God forgive them
