Manchester attack: City reacts with resilience and support


Messages of condolence and support have been sent by Manchester's public figures following the terror attack that killed 22 people and injured 59.
Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said the city would "pull together", adding: "That's what we are. That's what we do. They won't win."
The Bishop of Manchester, the Rt Rev David Walker said we must "commit ourselves to defeat this terrorism".
"Hatred won't win", Salford comedian Jason Manford said on Facebook.
Mr Manford said: "My heart is broken for those poor children and for all those families with an empty house tonight. Just can't believe it. Can't stop crying."
Inviting people to a vigil which was held at Albert Square on Tuesday evening, Mr Burnham tweeted: "We are grieving today but we are strong".
Books of condolence are open at Manchester Town Hall and on the council's website.
Rt Rev David Walker said people must not allow terrorists "to dictate the way we live".
"Manchester's a wonderfully diverse city, that's one of the things I really love about it and we can pull together.
"We've pulled together in the past, we had a terrorist bomb 21 years ago so we're not unused to these events.
"But it is a time for all of us to pray for the wounded, for the dead, for their families, but to commit ourselves to defeat this terrorism as we've defeated terrorism in the past," he said.
