    It is with deep regeret I have to inform all our members that my home town Manchester suffered a terrorist attack last night where 19 souls were lost.

    The attack targeted a pop concert by Ariana Grande and specifically an area of the concert where many teenage children congregate at the end of the concert to be collected by their parents.

    This is not the first time terror has struck Manchester and I am certain that the people of my town will be strong and robust dealing with this incodent and its aftermath

    God bless all those who lost their lives and indeed the families they leave behind

    I wanted to go into a RANT!! about the perpetrators of this attack on young people, because that is what it was. But felt this should be toned down at least while we mourn the loss of so many people and all the injured get healed.

    R.I.P to the lost and all the best to the injured and all families concerned.

    As you say @Bombardier Manchester has felt the cold hand of terrorism before and displayed great strength dealing with it.

    It would appear that the so called Islamic State have claimed responsibility, but then they always do dont they?

    At least one young lady has been named as a victim and a man has been arrested in connection with the terrorist attack.

    Wait Out!

    Given that most fans of Ariana are teen aged girls, it shows what low life scum these terrorists are. I'm not familiar with British law & don't know what kind of sentence could be handed down for this, but those responsible need to he hanged!!! :mad:

    May God comfort the injured and families of the deceased. SW

    @saiga I have not heard of any of our members from Manchester being hurt by this terrible event but thank you for your concern. Hope you had a great time at your event young man.

    @NebrHogger our laws do not permit hanging anymore (sadly) but a life sentence without parole is on the cards.

    I have had to deal with a teenage girl today (my daughter) she has been touched deeply by this incident although she wasn't there, she is a strong soul and yet remarkably sensitive to things such as these. Some of her school friends were at the concert and it touched me deeply that she was more concerned about their safety than her own.

    Well we have to continue with life, if only in honour of those we have lossed or those touched by terrorism throughout the years.

    Bombardier OUT! and sat in deep contemplation

    This is Saffie Rose Roussos an 8 year old beautiful girl who was a pupil at Tarleton Community Primary School, near Preston, England.
    She was the youngest to be killed

    What on this Gods Earth could be so important that this wonderful life should be taken away so violently?

    British security level raised to highest 'CRITICAL'
    It has been suggested that the security forces have information that a further attack is imminent . They would have information from informants and from internet and telephone chatter.

    The British Army will now be visibly protecting the public at key points around the country.

    I suspect we will see them here in Manchester, I will post some pics as and when I can.

    Good old British Army, always there when we need them.
