http://news.sky.com/story/reports-of-explosion-at-manchester-arena-10889460

Police in Manchester have urged people to stay away from Manchester Arena following reports of an explosion during a concert.

Witnesses reported hearing a "huge bang" at the venue during an Ariana Grande gig.

Majid Khan, 22, said: "I and my sister, along with a lot of others were seeing Ariana Grande perform at Manchester Arena, and we were all exiting the venue when around 10.40-10,45pm-ish a huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely
panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena.

"It was one bang and essentially everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us.

"Everyone was in a huge state of panic, calling each other as some had gone to the toilet whilst this had gone off, so it was just extremely disturbing for everyone there."

Suzy Mitchell, who lives opposite the venue, said: "(I) just heard a huge bang from my bed, came out to the front of my apartments (we're on the top floor so have perfect view) and everyone was running away in big crowds.

"The bang was so big I heard it from my room which is at the back of the apartment blocks.

"Currently lots of emergency services going to and from. But can't see anything substantial as of yet except fleeing people and lots of cars."

Network Rail says that lines out of Manchester Victoria station are currently blocked.
So this literally happened within an hour ago. Nobody really knows how serious it is or what is going on. Going to try and keep updated on this story.

I have a lot of friends in Manchester, seen a couple of videos from in the Arena with half the people screaming and running and the other half standing around going "it's just the fucking balloons." Armed police on scene and the area's closed off. Reports of people receiving "medical attention" may not be as serious as it sounds right now (thankfully) as my friends on-scene said none they've seen have had injuries and it's people being checked for shock etc. A few reports it could be a blown speaker, but we'll have to wait for more info I guess. I sincerely hope it's not an attack of any kind, I have a lot of friends in an around the city.

My niece was at the concert and thankfully I have just spoke to her and she is o.k. she said it was utter horrendous, Bodies everywhere and numerous injuries. She said the explosions were massive. Terrible this is

Helicopters are out. Armed police everywhere and hundreds of police vehicles, Ambulances and fire engines in the area. My niece who is in Manchester told me this 5 minutes ago so this is not false rumours. Fucking disgraceful

I feel terrible for the people who died, going to concerts is my favorite thing to do and I wanted to see Ariana myself someday.

I'm glad to hear she's okay.

You know what, I don't even give a fuck if they ban me for saying this. If you wanna make jokes whilst people are lying dead and others injured you're a bunch of pathetic cunts and should kindly go fuck yourself. Fuckin get some class, dickheads.

This forum has developed shit as fuck culture and it's recent. Three straight threads of this nonsense of laughing/mocking deaths.

I get that some people use humor to make sense of a terrible situation, but that's a different kind of humor. Some people think they have that ability when they really fucking don't.

Nah. You've let it out now and it would seem most people would agree with you. Letting it slide this time if only because you don't have much of a record.
