ISIS have said one of its 'soldiers' set off the ball bearing bomb at the Ariana Grande concert. At least 119 people were injured in the worst terror attack Britain has seen since the 7/7 London bombings.

Eight-year-old Saffie Roussos, 18-year-old Georgina Callander and 26-year-old John Atkinson were among those killed. Of the injured, 59 were taken to hospital - of which at least 12 were children - and 60 were treated at the scene.

Traumatised families have told how of nuts and bolts tore into young music fans when the blast was detonated in the foyer area of the Manchester Arena moments after a concert by the US popstar ended.
Forensics officers emerge after inspecting the horrific scene where a suicide bomber killed 22 people as they left a pop concert at the Manchester arena last night. Police know the identity of the bomber but have not yet named him
The suicide bomber, who was known to authorities and is said to be British-born, died inside the arena and police carried out a controlled explosion at what is believed to be his home during raids around the city today.

A 23-year-old man was arrested by anti-terror officers in the south of the city as police and security services attempt to work out if the suicide bomber was part of a cell. Security sources have told MailOnline that initial analysis of the 'sophisticated' device suggests it was made by an expert.

Hundreds of people are now desperately trying to track down loved ones who went missing in the aftermath of the attack, with police having to tell some parents their children have died.

Describing the scenes after the blast, one eyewitness told MailOnline she saw a young girl screaming 'I don't know where my sister is'. Another man told how he cradled a dying woman and saw a girl with her legs blown off.
