Explosion reported in Manchester area, hopefully it's nothing

There's another thread on this subject. Reports of possible technical issues at a concert. Hope that people are safe tonight.

brexitstolemyfuture Mon 22-May-17 23:23:47

Ah sorry, hopefully Ariana Grande and everyone else is ok

Wolfiefan Mon 22-May-17 23:24:26

Hope so. Limited details as yet.

valfane Mon 22-May-17 23:27:15

Oh FFS! What does that even mean?

brexitstolemyfuture Mon 22-May-17 23:27:30

Still can't find the other thread, but the station next door has apparently been closed

MumIsRunningAMarathon Mon 22-May-17 23:28:51

What does what mean val? confused

brexitstolemyfuture Mon 22-May-17 23:30:03

Eye witness on LBC claims to have seen a trail of blood and the explosion shock the venue. Obviously it's just one eye witness that's shook up so hopefully it isn't that bad

We don't even know what's happened yet. Hopefully it will only be a technical fault rather than a terror attack which is what the thread title implies

ComingUpTrumps Mon 22-May-17 23:30:41

Apparently the explosion was part of Ariana Grande's show. They're not sure yet though.

ComingUpTrumps Mon 22-May-17 23:31:05

Shit brexit shock

Rinoachicken Mon 22-May-17 23:31:12

It was a speaker apparently.

Zubba Mon 22-May-17 23:33:07

The blood video has been called out as a fake!! It was a balloon apparently, someone has been on stage to confirm it was a balloon.

ComingUpTrumps Mon 22-May-17 23:33:08

Ooh phew Rinoa

brexitstolemyfuture Mon 22-May-17 23:33:10

A source for the speaker explosion? I'm worried that even if it was nothing some may have been hurt in the stampede that seems to have happened sad

Ignoring the stupid thread title, police have confirmed a 'serious incident' would have been a big balloon to be heard outside arena surely?

brexitstolemyfuture Mon 22-May-17 23:42:37

Sorry if you don't like the title but seriously! Manchester police have said it's a serious incident and billboard have tweeted that Ariana Grande is ok.

Theimpossiblegirl Mon 22-May-17 23:43:25

other thread with more info

ComingUpTrumps Mon 22-May-17 23:44:04

Oh shit Telegraph has pictures of injured people coming from arena shock

And sorry OP but the thread title is a bit hmm

user1491572121 Mon 22-May-17 23:44:18

why do you keep mentioning Ariana Grande? Wouldn't you be more concerned for the thousands of little girls and their families there?

steff13 Mon 22-May-17 23:44:26

A woman in the article I read (the guardian, maybe) lives near the arena and said her apartment shook.

MumIsRunningAMarathon Mon 22-May-17 23:44:36

Don't worry op, it's fine

Some people just enjoy trying to belittle others. It's not worked at all though! smile

chickpeaburger Mon 22-May-17 23:44:54

"Pray for Manchester" Drives me mad all this jumping on the bandwagon. What do you even mean OP??

ComingUpTrumps Mon 22-May-17 23:46:10

Anyway forget about silly thread title. Anyone know any further information? I hope everyone's okay flowersflowers
