Its easy to criticise on a forum.
Having seen some pics...providing they are legit ofcourse then that absolutely is not a speaker. Ffs!
I hope everyone is ok.
I'm about 8-10 miles away, and there was a bang of some sort about 15 minutes ago. I've got all the Windows open. Constant sound of sirens of emergency services heading down the A6 in some hurry.
So many ambulances on the way there.
I hope those twitter pics are fake.
The photo of the carnage through a couple of doors is supposedly a fake.
Thank god if it is. Why would people do that? There's peoples kids in there ffs!
Why do people do that? *****!
Why would anyone fake that :/
Because lots of people are bells
Also, I'm not far away (20 mins) so if anyone is desperate for a lift home I can take you.
I live in GQ less than 100m from the Arena. We heard the bang. Emergency services, including helicopters, everywhere.
As it came after the show, hopefully it's a firework malfunction or an electrical issue and nothing more serious. As for the idiots posting images on Twitter (if they are indeed fake), hopefully they'll get a knock at the door over the next few days.
This. Massive attention seeking morons.
How many does the arena hold? 15k? Surely theyd be footage/pics online by now.
I've seen 17k+ in there for the Ice Hockey a few years ago...
Fill the floor and it's 20k probably.
Happened after the encore finished.
There is a video here of people getting out - https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/866776914450685953
Nothing nsfw in it though.
GMP now saying a serious incident
Few more Twitter folk saying it was an electrical failure like a transformer exploding rather than anything sinister. Hopefully correct and no injuries.
apparently bomb went off in the box office as people were leaving
Confirmed as a serious incident now on Manchester police Twitter.
Separate names with a comma.
