‘We could hear the police and ambulance sirens. It was terrifying.

‘There were thousands of people trying to get out at once. They were all screaming and crying. The whole place smelt smokey and burnt.

‘The explosion sounded like it was inside the building somewhere.’

Manchester’s Victoria station, which backs onto the arena, has been evacuated and all trains cancelled.

Greater Manchester Police said: ‘Emergency services are currently responding to reports of an explosion at Manchester Arena.

‘There are a number of confirmed fatalities and others injured.

‘Please AVOID the area as first responders work tirelessly at the scene. Details of a casualty bureau will follow as soon as available.’

Jonathan Yates, 24, from the Wirral, who attended the gig, told MailOnline: ‘The concert had finished and the lights came on almost instantly. There was a bang, a weird bang. There were lots of balloons but I thought to myself that can’t be a balloon, that’s not normal.

‘We were sat on the floor level and it came from the higher seats, people were running and screaming. Everyone stopped and I turned to my friend and said ‘we need to run’. Everyone was running and screaming and then when we got out it felt a bit more OK.

‘I heard five or six bangs that sounded like gunshots. When we got outside people were outside, crying and on their phones.

‘You don’t think it’s something that’s going to happen when you go…it was such a nice, fun concert.’

Nick Schurok, 28, from Manchester, told MailOnline: ‘Ariana Grande had just finished the concert and the lights came on. Everyone started leaving. I was on the floor and at the back of the arena people started exiting through the tunnels.

‘There was a bang in the left tunnel and everyone went to the middle tunnel. Then about two minutes later, there was another bang. The bang was so loud and crowds of people were running. There were lots of children and families there.’

Another witness Jenny Brewster told MailOnline: ‘We were exiting the building when it happened. We’d headed towards the main doors as Ariana was performing the last song because we wanted to beat the crowds, but – as we made our way there – a wall of security men blocked it and told us to go the other way.

‘Seconds later they shouted ‘RUN!’ and the explosion happened right behind them. Hundreds of people were running and screaming. Those men saved our lives.’

People attending the concert by Ariana Grande fled in panic on hearing the noises - some in tears

Catherine Macfarlane told Reuters: ‘We were making our way out and when we were right by the door there was a massive explosion and everybody was screaming.

‘It was a huge explosion – you could feel it in your chest. It was chaotic. Everybody was running and screaming and just trying to get out of the area.’

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 as they were trying to exit Trinity Way and that was blocked so everyone was just running to any exit they could find as quickly as they could.

‘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.’

Another concert-goer Laura, 22, told MailOnline: ‘There was a woman leaning against a car in the car park with her head down, covered in blood and a little girl being lifted away by paramedics. There were quite a few people injured in the car park.’

Her friend, Livvy, 22, added: ‘we saw the explosion happen. Bits of it hit me. My first thought was, ‘that’s a bomb’.

‘It was just when we were leaving. We saw a flash of light and smoke.

‘We’re really shaken up. If we had been there moment earlier we would have been caught up in it rather than seeing it.’

Oliver Jones, 17, was at the concert with his 19-year-old sister.

He said: ‘I was in the toilet and heard a loud bang just after the concert had finished and people had started to leave.

‘The bang echoed around the foyer of the arena and people started to run.

‘I seen people running and screaming towards one direction and then many were turning around to run back the other way.

‘Security was running out as well as the fans and concert goers.

‘Reports of blood and people injured.’

He added: ‘In so much shock and panic. You see this on the news all the time and never expect it to happen to you. I just had to run and make sure me and my sister were safe.’

Suzy Mitchell, 26, whose flat is opposite the venue, reported a huge bang rocking the neighbourhood.

She told the Press Association: ‘(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.

Erin McDougle, 20, from Newcastle said: ‘There was a loud bang at the end of the concert. The lights were already on so we knew it wasn’t part of the show.

‘At first we thought it was a bomb. There was a lot of smoke. People started running out. When we got outside the arena there were dozens of police vans and quite a few ambulances.’

A group of young men from Sheffield said they had seen at least five people covered in blood and others being carried out by bouncers.

‘Ariana Grande had just gone behind the curtain and the lights came up when there was this massive bang and a big cloud of smoke. I saw five people with blood all down them,’ said one.

Footage posted online by concert-goers showing fans filing out of the building while an announcer tried to maintain calm

Sophie Tedd, 25, from Darlington, said the noise and smoke seemed to come from the tiered seating stage right. ‘We were sitting on that side then suddenly there was this big bang in the block next to us,’ she said.

‘Everyone started screaming and we nearly got trampled on. There was a burning smell.’

A witness inside the venue, who gave only her first name, Ashley, told Sky News: ‘After the explosion, the staff in the Arena were telling us to follow the exit and go outside.

‘At first we did not think it was serious as we could not see any smoke but when we went outside we could see it was more serious.

‘There were loads of police turning up telling people to move away from the site.

‘Now there are a few people around still trying to get home – they are stuck because Manchester Station is closed.

‘I’ve not seen so many police in my life.’

Sasina Akhtar said: ‘We were in the lower tier and there was an explosion behind us at the back of the arena.

‘We saw young girls with blood on them, everyone was screaming and people were running. There was lots of smoke.’

A barman at the nearby Steven Charles Snooker Club, who gave his name as Tyler, said he saw people lying on the ground covered in blood.

‘We’ve had a few people in with panic attacks and in all kinds of disarray,’ he told Press Association.

‘We’ve got four girls here – trying to get them sorted to get picked up.

‘There was a gentleman on the floor with his leg all bleeding and woman with blood down one side of her face.

‘We felt something but didn’t know what it was – there was a sound like thunder.

‘One girl had a panic attack and another had streaming tears, a woman had a heart attack just outside.

‘It’s a lot of teenagers – they’re all in tears.’

Kindhearted locals also took to social media to offer their help to people who had attended the concert.

Kim Corbett wrote: ‘If anyone needs picking up please let me know. I live in Bury but I’m happy to help any way I can. God bless those hurt tonight.’

Vicky Fraser added: ‘If anybody needs somewhere to stay I will pick them up…can meet them as close as I can get to town.’

There are reports on social media that up to 50 unaccompanied children have been taken in to Manchester Holiday Inn and are being looked after by adults.

Paula Robinson posted on Facebook: ‘We have taken as many kids as we can to Holiday Inn we will keep them safe and stay with them.’

Former Manchester United footballer Rio Ferdinand said: ‘Just heard the news what’s happening in Manchester… hope everyone is safe and sound!’

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn tweeted: ‘Terrible incident in Manchester. My thoughts are with all those affected and our brilliant emergency services.’

Liverpool City Region metro mayor Steve Rotheram tweeted: ‘My 2 daughters caught up in the Manchester explosion at the arena. They are thankfully safe, but I fear for others.’

He posted later: ‘Confirmed deaths at the Manchester arena. Feel sick to think that people have lost their lives at a gig attended by so many young people.

‘All my thoughts go out to those parents waiting to hear of the safety of their children. It’s a parents worse nightmare. So, so sad.’

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: ‘Emergency services responding to serious incident at Manchester Arena. Avoid the area. More details will follow as soon as available.’

A British Transport Police spokesman said: ‘We are aware of an incident at Manchester Arena. We have officers at the scene and will provide further updates as soon as possible.’

US pop singer Grande was performing her Dangerous Woman European tour at Manchester Arena when the incident happened.

Later this week, she is scheduled to perform in London, followed by concerts in Belgium, Poland and Germany.

Picture of the young girl with the jeans is so poignant, whatever this is. A fun night out, probably just an hour or so ago she would have been singing along and having a great time. So much evil in this world. Among the frightening reports of fatalities, I hope as many families as possible hear the reassuring sound of that key in the front door tonight and give their loved ones a big hug. My heart goes out to those who aren’t so lucky. Horrible enough to read, can’t imagine the fears of those caught up in this.

One of our major AM talk radio hosts in the US is updating us on his radio show, but on all the local news on tv I haven’t heard a thing. Maybe his connections, but I found it weird it’s not lighting up every radio/television station.

Terrible news. Christ, she has a very young following. There would have been so many kids at this concert. Thoughts and prayers to the people of Manchester who were at this place or had relatives or friends there.

The screaming people at the stadium….caused mass panic. When reality was probably more likely to be a lighting rig overheated and exploded

British transp police say explosion was in foyer/ticketing hall area at 1030pm funny enough just as the concert ended, when people would be leaving via this area. Are there lightning rigs in the ticketing area?

From Sky News: Suzy Mitchell, 26, whose flat is opposite the venue, told the Press Association: “(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.” Hope this wasn`t a bomb but sounding bad the more details emerge.
