A further 59 people were injured when the makeshift explosive device was detonated by a suicide bomber at the Manchester Arena last night.

A 48-year-old woman, now being called the 'Angel of Manchester', is the toast of Britain after she rescued more than two dozen horrified teens who streamed out of the terrorist-hit Ariana Grande concert in the United Kingdom last night.

It is believed the hotel opened its doors to desperate teenagers and young people who got separated from their parents/gaurdians after they fled the scene in horror.

Now 22 people are dead and 59 are injured following an improvised explosive device being set of inside that venue. She was called "Angel of Manchester" and "a wonderful lady".

"It's your instinct to go and help and it was children and it was a lot of children. Our hotels were working with police throughout the night, but we did not have a group of unaccompanied children at our hotel".

The Park Inn, one of the hotels closest to the Manchester Arena, provided free food, drink, towels, duvets and pillows to those who were stranded after the city's main train station was closed.

"We continue to do all we can to support them".

"We ran out", Mrs Robinson said.

Social media users are using the hashtag #ManchesterMissing to help trace missing concert-goers in the wake of the attack, which killed 19 people. "We have taken as many kids as can to [the] Holiday Inn", she wrote in a Facebook post.

Local health workers and cab drivers are also amongst those offering their services.

May added: "The people of Manchester and the United Kingdom have fallen victim to a callous terrorist attack - an attack that targeted some of the youngest people in our society with callous calculation".

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that a 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the bomb attack at the Ariana Grande concert.
