Horrific news we have awoken too,we were in Victoria station last night at half six and could see that the audience was generally young girls ,so young many with a parent ,we asked some young girls who was on ,they could have been only 13 y old or so.
To have targeted such a vulnerable audience is just ,words cannot describe.
Just earlier we had been at the cricket and had a walk to Salford Quays for the tram and passing Old Trafford and we thought it was ott that visitors to the mega store were having bag searches , its just going to be even more intense now.
Those poor parents.Horrific.

There is a twitter video of parents waiting at the bottom of the steps in Victoria and as the chaos begins you see one young dad react with first concern ,then utter panic as he legs it up the stairs into the Arena against the tide ,it turns my stomach to think what must have been going through his mind.God Bless.

It's fuckin sickening, that it's a social media sensation and fuckin purely aimed at kids, young girls mainly plus maybe their mums.

What the fuck.

And they managed to wait until it was over????

They reckon they know the guy.

If that's a lone wolf, fuck me, that's some bomb

Glad the seasons over because Old Trafford would have been a target

If it was proper ISIS and not just inspired, i.e. If they knew about it, and even if not, wait to you see security in Stockholm. Was there not an attack in Stockholm recently as well.

I don't mean to sound really callous, but I hope no players wee cousins or sister or friend or anything like that at it.
