In the wake of the deadliest terrorist attack to hit Britain in a decade, rather than be divided, the people of Manchester are coming together to help victims and families.

At least 22 people, including children, were killed by a suicide bomber at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena last night, and at least a further 59 have been injured.

To help those in need, citizens of Manchester are taking strangers into their homes, offering free services like taxi rides, and sharing information about missing people in the hope that they are found.

Taxi drivers and hotel workers have been working for free through the night:

This girl was found by strangers and looked after – the strangers also tweeted the girl’s friend to let her know she was safe:

Thousands of people are retweeting tweets helping to find missing people:

There are dozens of people offering up rooms in their home for those in need:

Space is also being offered up in Sikh temples:

Some people stranded in Manchester have been taken to the Etihad stadium, where locals are bringing food and drinks for them:

This Rabbi has been bringing cups of tea to policemen on duty:

The Manchester Evening News have compiled a list of places you can go to give blood:

And has also set up a crowdfunding page to help the victims and their families. At the time of writing it’s already raised almost £25,000:

This charity is offering free counselling to anyone affected by the incident:

And of course the emergency services have been working tirelessly to help everyone affected by the incident.

The emergency number to call if you are concerned about loved ones or anyone who may have been in the area is 0161 856 9400.
