Armed police stand guard at Manchester Arena after reports of an explosion at the venue during an Ariana Grande gig in Manchester, England Monday, May 22, 2017.
Eight hospitals across Manchester are treating the 59 people injured by the explosion.
He said: "This has been the most horrific incident we have had to face in Greater Manchester and one that we all hoped we would never see".
Police responded to reports of an explosion shortly after 10.35pm at the arena, which has a capacity for 21,000 people, and where Grande had been performing to an audience that included many children. "They gave the best possible immediate response to those who seek to divide us, and it will be that spirit of Manchester that will prevail and hold us together", he said.
Chief Constable Ian Hopkins says forensic investigations are continuing to determine if the attacker had accomplices.
Here is what we know so far about the terrorist attack at Manchester Arena.
Hopkins said the attacker was believed to have been "carrying an improvised explosive device, which he detonated, causing this atrocity".
Public figures and organisations from across Oxfordshire have paid their respects to the victims and those affected.

"This is an attack on innocence", he said.
North West Ambulance Service said a total of 59 casualties had been taken to six hospitals around Manchester.

"The ties between Ireland and Manchester run deep, but we know that the people of Manchester are strong and resilient and will rise above this barbaric attack on innocence".
"I'd like to pay tribute to the emergency services who have worked throughout the night professionally and effectively - they have done an excellent job".
