Many of you won’t ever have been to Manchester but you will definitely have heard of it. It is famous all over the world for so many wonderful things great football teams. … . incredible music, oasis and joy division. … But when I think of Manchester, the place that I know, I think of the spirit of the people there. And I am telling you a more tight-knit group of people you will be hard-pressed to find — strong, proud, caring people with community at its core. And if it was even possible, the spirit of the people of Manchester will grow even stronger this evening. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Manchester tonight, all of the staff of the MEN arena, all of the security teams, all of the emergency services, Ariana and her team and all of those families affected by tonight.
