Collomb, who spoke with British Prime Minister Theresa May after the attack at an Ariana Grande concert that killed 22, said the two countries should continue cooperating closely on counterterrorism efforts despite Britain's pending exit from the European Union.
Tributes have also been paid to 26-year-old John Atkinson from Bury, and Marcin and Angelika Klis, Polish parents of a student at the University of York, who were both at the concert to pick up their children.
Rudd said Britain's increased official threat level will remain at "critical" as the investigation proceeds and won't be lowered until security services are convinced there is no active plot in place.

The head teacher, Chris Upton, said her death was "a tremendous shock to all of us".
Mr Upton added: "The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking".

"This means that their assessment is not only that an attack remains highly likely but that a further attack may be imminent", May said in a televised statement from her Downing Street Office.
