Police confirmed that 19 people are dead and over 50 are injured after an incident during Ariana Grande Manchester gig which they believe to be a terrorist act. Police have confirmed that the incident is being treated as a terrorist incident until more is known. The concert attenders were evacuated, Theresa May has commented, saying: “We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack.” A spokesman for Ariana Grande confirmed the singer is “okay”, continuing: “We are further investigating what happened”. People in social networks shared that they heard explosions, saw a lot of police and thought they all would die. Evie Brewster, who attended the concert, told MailOnline: “Ariana Grande had just finished her last song and left the stage when a huge explosion sounded. Suddenly everybody started screaming and running for the exit. We could hear the police and ambulance sirens. It was terrifying. There were thousands of people trying to get out at once. They were all screaming and crying. The whole place smelt smokey and burnt. The explosion sounded like it was inside the building somewhere.” Another witness told MailOnline that the noise sounded like a “gunshot”.
