‘Lincolnshire stands with Manchester’: Messages of support pour out after terrorist attack

People across Lincolnshire are expressing their support for those affected by last night’s terror bombing in the city of Manchester.

Twenty two people, including children, have died following the attack after an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

Around 60 people were also injured when an improvised explosive device was detonated in the foyer of the arena.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that a lone man was believed to have been responsible for the explosion at around 10.30pm on Monday, May 22.

Devastating scenes emerged of friends and families desperately searching for their loved ones.

Police said in a statement that they were treating the incident as a terror attack and are working to establish whether the attacker, who died in the arena, was acting alone or as part of a network.

In Lincolnshire, emergency services have posted messages of support on social media.

Some 400 armed officers were deployed to the incident in the centre of Manchester.
