More than 20 people were killed and dozens have been left injured after a suicide bomber detonated a device at Manchester Arena on Monday night following an Ariana Grande concert.

A number of people who were at the performance, including teenagers from the North East, have still not been found.

Penshaw Monument was lit up red white and blue in solidarity with Manchester on Tuesday in tribute to those affected by the incident.
