Manchester Bombing: The UK Adjusts

Manchester Bombing: The UK Adjustsby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

UK Terror Threat Level Raised To 'Critical' --

The UK continues to adjust to one of the biggest terrorist attacks on home soil this week after a suicide bomber claimed the lives of at least 22 people at Manchester Arena on the night of Monday 22nd May. Among those killed in the explosion were children – some of whom have been named – while, at the time of writing, many families remain separated after the unprecedented and brutal attack. The attacker – named by police as Salman Abedi, 22 – appeared to target people leaving an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night – and with him, he took multiple young lives and has inflicted life-threatening injuries upon scores more.

The attack has been condemned by the Muslim Council of Britain, and has likewise been slammed by Prime Minister Theresa May as a ‘callous’ act of ‘sickening cowardice’ – as both May and her fellow party leaders including Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron agreed to suspend election campaigning until further notice out of respect. It’s thought that police found a second suspicious object at the Arena location shortly after the first explosion – a device which was safely detonated in a controlled explosion to prevent further casualties.

The disaster has largely drawn words of compassion for those families devastated by the attack from many figures in the media. Ariana Grande herself offered words of shock via Twitter, with the singer thought to be cancelling further tour dates as a result of the tragic event. Pop stars Harry Styles, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift were among those paying respects to those affected by the disaster online, while James Corden made a sombre monologue about Manchester, its people and its place in world culture via his Late Late Show. The Queen and Prince Philip also led a minute’s silence as a mark of respect in London, while what has been a fairly turbulent election campaign rightfully mutes itself out of respect for the families traumatized by the events of Monday night.

Details will be likely to follow on the disaster and One News Page will bring you any developments that arise. Regardless of revelations to come, however, it is safe to say that Manchester is in the hearts and minds of millions.

Meanwhile, the UK terror threat level has been raised to its highest level of "critical", meaning further attacks may be imminent, according to Prime Minister Theresa May.
