Gloucestershire Police Urge People To Stay Vigilant

As chaos erupted in and around the Manchester Arena, a woman hailed as "the angel of Manchester" sprang into action - corralling dozens of terrified teens to safety.

'We only live round the corner and wanted to see if anyone wanted to sit where it's warm while they wait for a taxi, ' they told BBC News.

More than 50 kids were taken to a nearby Holiday Inn so they could be kept safe after the attack that left 19 dead and 50 others injured.

Following the explosion, the people of Manchester have refused to stand down in the face of fear.

He added: "There has been reports of a number of unaccompanied children being bought to a Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express in the area, however these are incorrect".

The Independent confirmed with the Holiday Inn that Ms Robinson had in fact taken the teenagers to the Premier Inn in town, located a few hundred metres from the arena.

"The hotels are fully operational and continue to offer support".

Mr Govender praised the bravery of emergency services workers and said he would open the cathedral for a vigil once the police let him in.


IBTimes UK is awaiting a statement from Greater Manchester Police.

Tweets said Ms Fawell, believed to be from Otley, West Yorkshire, was last seen in the foyer area of the arena shortly before the explosion.

She then posted on Facebook saying she's got "loads of kids" with her at the hotel and asked people to share her post so parents could come and pick them up.

She took the teenagers to a nearby hotel and shared her phone number on social media telling anxious parents to contact her.

After the incident on Monday night, city residents took to social media offering to take in any people left stranded, using the hashtag #roomformanchester.

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".

Prime Minister Theresa May has since said that officers are aware of the identity of the suicide bomber.
