As the horror of the Manchestor attack begins to unfold, the Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsiblity for the attack.
The attack has killed 22 people and injured 59, with children among the dead.
Police have named the suspect as Salman Abedi, a 22 year old student at the Univeristy of Salford, who detonated a home-made bomb in public around 10:30pm on Monday.
The bomb exploded as young fans left an Ariana Grande pop concert.
The man died in the attack.
The man is believed to have been born in Manchester with a family connection to Libya.
The incident has been identified as a suicide attack and a 23-year-old man has also been arrested in connection to the attack.
The UK threat level has been raised to "critical" (the highest level) suggesting a further attack may be imminent.
This is only the third time Britain has raised the threat level to "critical."
The terrorist attack has been identified as the worst in Manchester history, and the worst in Britain, since July 7 2005, when 52 people died in London's transit system.
Security experts have expressed the use of a suicide bomb implies sophistication and could indicate other collaborators.
Chris Phillips, a former leader of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office in Britain, told the BBC: “It has involved a lot of planning — it’s a bit of a step up. This is a much more professional-style attack.”
Vigils are being held in Manchester, as well as other parts of Britain to express solidarity and support.
