Re: Explosion at Manchester Arena

First BBC reports are that there was a large explosion at 22:35 local time, outside the foyer entrance, near the ticket office to the Manchester Arena building, one man was blown into the building entrance by the blast.

The explosion was made just as the Ariana Grande concert ended. 50 injuries and 19 deaths are reported. (Public reports of 2 explosions, but this could be a resulting echo??) The building capaciy is 21'000 people.

Some people had already left the building but thousands of young people are being kept inside the building, for their own safety, until the area has been secured, many teenagers are screaming and panicking, fighting to get out of the building.

Bomb disposal team is on site. Trains have been halted at the nearby Victoria Station, police ask the public to keep away. Police consider it a possible terrorist act.
