At least 19 people were killed and dozens others seriously injured as a result of a bomb towards the end of an Ariana Grande pop concert in Manchester, England.

Counterterrorist police last night confirmed that they were treating it as a “possible terrorist incident” and bomb disposal units were at the venue, the Manchester Arena.

Eyewitnesses described one or two loud bangs around 10.40 pm, minutes after the end of a performance by Ariana Grande, the American singer.

One concertgoer said that he had been blown 30ft by the force of the explosion, while a string of eyewitnesses described dead and seriously injured victims in the ticket hall.
