  • Manchester holds mass singalong for arena victims on anniversary of attack

So far, Ariana has not yet posted anything about the bombing on her popular Instagram account, but perhaps she will by the end of the day.

The singalong came after a day of events to mark the first anniversary of the horrific event, including a service at Manchester Cathedral - including a one-minute silence observed across the United Kingdom - and a gathering in the city on Tuesday evening (22.05.18).

It's been one year since a bombing took the lives of many Ariana Grande fans in England.

Tweeting alongside the clip, she wrote: "so wish i were there with u all today. u have no idea. love you so v much".

Mani from The Stone Roses said: 'One voice Manchester - sing it up'.

The prime minister said that "such appalling acts of wickedness" would strengthen Britain's resolve "to defeat such twisted ideologies and beliefs". "You think with time it'll become easier to talk about". "It will also give thanks to emergency workers who assisted on the ground and in the aftermath of the attack". She included the bee emoji, which has always been a symbol of Manchester.

The commemorations began in the afternoon when Prince William and Theresa May attended a remembrance service at Manchester Cathedral, and were joined by the families and friends of those killed.

The ceremony included a national silence at 2.30pm to allow the country to remember those who died.

On the altar behind him were 22 candles - fashioned from the thousands left behind at the memorial in St Ann's Square a year ago - each representing one of the young victims.

Twenty-two concertgoers were killed, and police say more than 800 people were left "with physical and deep psychological injuries". The Lord Mayor of Manchester, June Hitchen, and the Bishop of Manchester, the Right Reverend David Walker, were also part of the event.

And at At 10.31pm, bells will ring out from the city's Town Hall, St Ann's Church and St Mary's RC Church to mark the moment when the attack took place 12 months ago.
