Nine more victims of Manchester bomb attack are identified

At least 22 people died in Monday night's bombing attack on a Manchester pop concert, including an eight-year-old girl and several parents who came to pick up their children.


"Unfortunately, I can confirm Olivia Campbell was one of the angels taken too soon".

In a statement, the head teacher of the Tarleton Community Primary School that she attended in the village of Tarleton, Lancashire, described her as "simply a handsome little girl in every aspect of the word".

The college, which confirmed her death, spoke of its "enormous sadness", saying: "Our deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers go out to all of Georgina's family, friends, and all of those affected by this loss".

Russell Hayward, believed to be Mr Hett's partner, paid tribute to him, saying: "We got the news last night that our wonderful iconic and handsome Martyn didn't survive".

Both women were injured in the blast and are being treated at separate injuries. "Now sat with her mum and step dad", she said in one tweet.

"A true gentleman", she added.

Olivia's mother Charlotte earlier made a television appeal urging members of the public to come forward if they had any information about her daughter's whereabouts when she did not return from the concert on Monday night.

Emilie posted a photo of herself with the dead teen and shared the caption: "remember meeting her last month". Thankfully I have this wonderful family and fantastic friends to keep each other strong. Saffie comes from a close, loving family and we can only imagine what they are going through. "The children are safe", Polish foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski told private radio RMF FM, according to Reuters.

Polish media identified them as Angelika and Marcin Klis.

John Atkinson, 26, from Bury in Lancashire, was named by friends as one of those killed.

Georgina Callander, a student, was a mega fan of Ariana Grande, with a picture of the two circulating on social media as her name emerged as the first confirmed victim.

Kelly Brewster, from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, was reported by friends and family to be among those killed in the attack. "I love you Lisa I'll miss you so much".

Her partner, Ian Winslow, later wrote on Facebook: "Not sure how this works but it isn't good news".

Howe's stepson Jordan Howe confirmed his stepmother's death on Facebook, writing: "They took a caring handsome mum and step mother away from us all she was incredible to us all".

Some of those reports indicated Brewster died shielding her 11-year-old niece from the blast.
