Manchester attack victims named

Eight year old Saffie Rose Roussos, Olivia Campbell, 15, John Atkinson, 28, Georgina Callander thought to be 18 and Kelly Brewster are the first five to have been named.

A vigil was held in Manchester on Tuesday evening to show support for victims and their families, and those still searching for people after the attack on 22 May at a concert by US singer Ariana Grande. A hotline has been set up for people concerned about loved ones: 0800 096 0095. Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday that the attack targeted "innocent children, young people and their families". Eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos, was "simply a beautiful little girl in every sense of the word," said Chris Upton, head teacher at Lancashire's Tarleton Community Primary School. "She was loved by everyone and her warmth and kindness will be remembered fondly," he said. He added: "News of Saffie's death in this appalling attack has come as a tremendous shock to all of us and I would like to send our deepest condolences to all of her family and friends. "The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking. "Our focus is now on helping pupils and staff cope with this shocking news and we have called in specialist support from Lancashire County Council to help us do that."
