in half an hour. Now, it's time to join the BBC's news teams where you

:00:00.:00:00.

Two teenage girls from Barra are still missing after

:00:00.:00:07.

Many Scots were caught up in chaos of the attack.

:00:08.:00:13.

It was horrific seeing it. People were running for their lives,

:00:14.:00:27.

jumping over chairs, falling down the stairs. People were obviously

:00:28.:00:28.

terrified. We're in Manchester

:00:29.:00:29.

and on the Island of Barra. Security is tightened and armed

:00:30.:00:31.

police are deployed in Scotland's And politicians come

:00:32.:00:34.

together at Holyrood to pay their respects as election

:00:35.:00:38.

campaigning is suspended. Two girls from the island of Barra

:00:39.:00:57.

are still missing after last night's 15-year-old Laura MacIntyre

:00:58.:01:02.

and Eilidh MacLeod, who's 14, attended the concert by singer

:01:03.:01:06.

Ariana Grande at the Manchester Arena, but since then they've failed

:01:07.:01:08.

to make contact with their families. Other concert-goers from Scotland

:01:09.:01:12.

have been speaking about their fears when they realised a

:01:13.:01:14.

terror attack was under way. Here's our correspondent,

:01:15.:01:16.

David Henderson. Still missing, Laura MacIntyre and

:01:17.:01:44.

Eilidh McLeod, teenagers from the island of Barra, now feared to be

:01:45.:01:49.

victims of a terrorist attack. Today Laura's Father Michael appeared to

:01:50.:01:54.

help on social media. On stage last night, the American

:01:55.:01:59.

star Ariana Grande. Fans had come from far and wide. Among them, many

:02:00.:02:05.

Scots, like Lauren Baxter from Glasgow. It happened just add she

:02:06.:02:13.

had went off stage. There were loads of people trying to squash out of a

:02:14.:02:17.

tiny door. There were thousands of people inside this arena when it

:02:18.:02:21.

happened. Did people start to run, did they start to panic? Yeah, loads

:02:22.:02:25.

of people were running, screaming and crying. Running up the stairs,

:02:26.:02:30.

trying to get out of any possible exit. Last night, it was Ariana

:02:31.:02:36.

Grande. It was an audience of youngsters. Yeah. Young people,

:02:37.:02:40.

quite young. I think it's just... Six. The person who's done it is

:02:41.:02:47.

just a monster. -- I think it's just sick. The explosion caused a wave of

:02:48.:02:51.

alarm of thousands of fans tried to flee the arena. Children, parents

:02:52.:02:56.

and teenagers pushing in falling in their rush to get out. Among them,

:02:57.:03:01.

two sisters from Stirlingshire. It was horrific seeing it. People were

:03:02.:03:05.

running for their lives, jumping over chairs, falling down the

:03:06.:03:09.

stairs. People were obviously terrified. But no one really knew

:03:10.:03:13.

what had happened, because we were further away from it. So there was

:03:14.:03:18.

no one to say there's a bomb gone off, or two maybe reassure us that

:03:19.:03:22.

it was OK. Everyone thought that it with a balloon, because of the

:03:23.:03:25.

billions that had fallen down during the concert. It was terrifying

:03:26.:03:30.

seeing everyone that scare -- the balloons that had fallen down. All I

:03:31.:03:37.

saw, because ten was in front of us, my mum and I heard the bang. Then

:03:38.:03:42.

everyone turned around and heard the bang. Where we had the bang,

:03:43.:03:46.

everyone just started running so fast. That's when people got scared.

:03:47.:03:50.

If they didn't run, I don't think people would have been scared.

:03:51.:03:55.

The attack claimed the life of 22 people. And almost 60 were injured.

:03:56.:04:00.

Four more troubled home to Scotland before going to hospital here.

:04:01.:04:04.

Last night in Manchester we witnessed a barbaric attack on

:04:05.:04:08.

innocent people enjoying a music concert. My thoughts and those of

:04:09.:04:14.

the Scottish Government, and indeed all of the people of Scotland, are

:04:15.:04:19.

with all those who have lost loved ones or sustained injuries in this

:04:20.:04:24.

dreadful atrocity. There can be nothing more cowardly than to attack

:04:25.:04:27.

children and young people enjoying a night out.

:04:28.:04:32.

Tonight, the police investigation gathers pace into how this, a night

:04:33.:04:36.

of music, became a scene of horror. In a moment we'll be getting

:04:37.:04:39.

the latest from our reporter, But first we cross to

:04:40.:04:41.

Cameron Buttle who's in Castlebay People there must be desperate

:04:42.:04:45.

for news of Laura and Eilidh? Absolutely. When you live in a place

:04:46.:05:03.

like Barra in an island community, you can't think that you any further

:05:04.:05:07.

away from the horror and tragedy of a terror attack. Tonight the entire

:05:08.:05:13.

island is desperate for news of two young teenage girls. Laura

:05:14.:05:17.

MacIntyre, who was 15, and Eilidh McLeod, who is 14 years old. They

:05:18.:05:21.

travelled with family members down to the concert. Like many

:05:22.:05:24.

concertgoers they were left at the venue by this family members. But

:05:25.:05:30.

they haven't been seen since. That's despite an online campaign by family

:05:31.:05:34.

members desperate for news. They've posted pictures online. Those

:05:35.:05:38.

pictures have been shed tens of thousands of times. So far tonight,

:05:39.:05:43.

there is no use. -- have been shared of thousands of times.

:05:44.:05:48.

Even older people on the island who don't have children that age will

:05:49.:05:54.

certainly know their parents or grandparents. Everybody feels it.

:05:55.:05:57.

The mind is stop quarrying. They are very sorry for the families. --

:05:58.:06:04.

their mind is stuck worrying. They demand to imagine the awful feeling

:06:05.:06:10.

that they've got at moment. -- they don't want to imagine.

:06:11.:06:14.

The teenagers were at the Castlebay School which has about 170 pupils.

:06:15.:06:24.

We understand they were very well-known pupils. Tonight's Western

:06:25.:06:27.

Isles councillors say they are standing by to offer support to the

:06:28.:06:31.

pupils, school and wider community. Today friends and families are

:06:32.:06:39.

expecting to hear stories -- were expecting to hear stories from these

:06:40.:06:42.

girls about a fantastic night. But instead the entire island is just

:06:43.:06:43.

desperate for news. Now let's go to Rebecca

:06:44.:06:45.

Curran in Manchester. Rebecca, apart from the enormity

:06:46.:06:48.

of the investigation, police are trying to help families

:06:49.:06:50.

like those of Laura and Eilidh, Yes, absolutely. You join me in

:06:51.:07:04.

Manchester city centre tonight close to where the attack happened in the

:07:05.:07:10.

arena last night. And as we've heard, these two teenage girls from

:07:11.:07:15.

Barra, 15-year-old Laura MacIntyre and her friend, 14-year-old Eilidh

:07:16.:07:19.

McLeod, have been missing since that explosion just after half past ten.

:07:20.:07:24.

More than 20 hours on, police can't give us any details of what may or

:07:25.:07:28.

may not have happened, or where the girls could be. We know, as Cameron

:07:29.:07:33.

said, that the girls attended the concert and that they had travelled

:07:34.:07:37.

to Manchester with family who are all safe. But no one has talked to

:07:38.:07:43.

the girl since then. Greater Manchester Police said officers are

:07:44.:07:48.

supporting the families of the missing people and that does include

:07:49.:07:51.

those families that have travelled from Barra today, desperately

:07:52.:07:57.

seeking some news. But as Cameron also mentioned, the picture that has

:07:58.:08:02.

been shared online of Laura and Eilidh, police officers have thanked

:08:03.:08:06.

members of the public for sharing that information in an attempt to

:08:07.:08:10.

try to reunite people with their loved ones. One other thing that a

:08:11.:08:13.

Greater Manchester Police have said is that they do not believe there

:08:14.:08:17.

are any unaccompanied children in any of the hotels in Manchester, as

:08:18.:08:23.

a result of last night's explosion. They can't tell us how many people

:08:24.:08:28.

remain missing, but it is understood to be several, including Laura and

:08:29.:08:32.

Eilidh. This is a city still coming to terms with what happened last

:08:33.:08:37.

night, that horrific act of terrorism which targeted children

:08:38.:08:39.

and young people that were supposed to be having a good night out. But

:08:40.:08:43.

it must be said that for those families that still don't know where

:08:44.:08:47.

their children are, it's hard to imagine what they're all going

:08:48.:08:48.

through. Thank you. Thanks to Rebecca Curran

:08:49.:08:50.

in Manchester, and Police say they'll be reviewing

:08:51.:08:51.

security at this weekend's Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park

:08:52.:08:56.

following last night's They're also deploying more armed

:08:57.:08:58.

officers onto the streets for what they say is reassurance,

:08:59.:09:02.

and they insist there is no Our Home Affairs Correspondent,

:09:03.:09:04.

Reevel Alderson, reports. Panic in the Manchester Arena,

:09:05.:09:10.

confusion after a pop concert. Fans escaping after

:09:11.:09:17.

the bomb went off. In the minutes following last

:09:18.:09:20.

night's explosion, the focus of the emergency services

:09:21.:09:22.

was on treating injured survivors, clearing the area in case

:09:23.:09:25.

of a further attack, Now across the UK the

:09:26.:09:27.

emphasis is on security. And increased police presence is

:09:28.:09:51.

being deployed across transport areas and where large crowd should

:09:52.:09:58.

be. A full Hampden Park for the semifinal of the Scottish cup.

:09:59.:10:02.

Police are already reviewing security there. The Scottish cup is

:10:03.:10:06.

a high-profile event in any case. What we'll do over the next couple

:10:07.:10:10.

of days is just review the security in place. But don't be surprised if,

:10:11.:10:16.

for example, we deploy armed police officers similar to what you see in

:10:17.:10:23.

airports for that particular match. The fact that last night's atrocity

:10:24.:10:27.

happened at a concert venue has prompted security reviews here at

:10:28.:10:33.

Scotland's largest, the Hydro. Management so they are liaising with

:10:34.:10:38.

police, but have no plans to cancel events. The motivation of the

:10:39.:10:43.

Manchester bomb so far is unknown, but Islamic State have claimed

:10:44.:10:46.

responsibility. Muslim groups here were quick to condemn the bombing

:10:47.:10:50.

which they say was designed to create divisions in society. If we

:10:51.:10:54.

turn on each other, then they have one. If we turn on each other, than

:10:55.:10:58.

other groups that seek to capitalise on each other have one. What we have

:10:59.:11:02.

to do as a community is come together. We need to express our

:11:03.:11:08.

anger and express our disgust at these situations, and display a

:11:09.:11:12.

solid, united front. Across the country, like here in Dundee, flags

:11:13.:11:17.

have been flying in half-mast. A mark of respect for the 22 dead in

:11:18.:11:18.

Manchester. We stand for a moment's

:11:19.:11:21.

silence before press. And that the General Assembly

:11:22.:11:23.

of the Church of Scotland, reflection as ministers and elders

:11:24.:11:25.

prayed for the victim. So many young, innocent

:11:26.:11:27.

lives taken away. So much sadness, hurt and pain not

:11:28.:11:29.

only for the people of Manchester, Our prayers and support

:11:30.:11:32.

is going to all of those caught up in this situation,

:11:33.:11:36.

as well as for the One of the great things we see

:11:37.:11:38.

at this time as people not running away from danger,

:11:39.:11:46.

but running towards In the light of last night's attack,

:11:47.:11:48.

the emergency services in Scotland's say they're constantly

:11:49.:11:58.

testing their responses to such an incident,

and messages of condolence for those All election campaigning has been

suspended following the atrocity. At Holyrood, MSPs stood

:12:15.:12:26.

for a minute's silence. The First Minister said

:12:27.:12:27.

terror would not prevail. This from our Political

:12:28.:12:29.

Editor, Brian Taylor. Nicola Sturgeon should have been

:12:30.:12:38.

watching her election manifesto. Instead she began the day at Saint

:12:39.:12:43.

Andrew's House, chairing an emergency meeting to review security

:12:44.:12:48.

in Scotland. Down the hill at Holyrood, flags at half-mast

:12:49.:12:50.

silently signalled sympathy and anguish. Rivalry and rhetoric that

:12:51.:12:57.

aside, political leaders came to Parliament not in conflict, but in

:12:58.:13:00.

solidarity. May I call on the First Minister.

:13:01.:13:04.

The First Minister said it was particularly villainous, that the

:13:05.:13:09.

victims were children. There can be nothing more cowardly

:13:10.:13:13.

than attacking children and young people enjoying a fun night out.

:13:14.:13:17.

Across Scotland today we stand in solidarity with the people of

:13:18.:13:19.

Manchester. She urged Scotland to be vigil, and

:13:20.:13:26.

more. She outlined plans to help young folk coped.

:13:27.:13:28.

Many young people may feel particularly vulnerable at this

:13:29.:13:32.

time. This is a time to ensure that we talk to our children at home and

:13:33.:13:36.

at school. And when we hear them talking amongst their friends.

:13:37.:13:40.

And she insisted be terror would not succeed.

:13:41.:13:44.

As human beings, we cannot comprehend the twisted motivations

:13:45.:13:49.

that lead people to carry out such atrocities, particularly when they

:13:50.:13:53.

target children and young people. They will not succeed. Not now and

:13:54.:13:58.

not ever. Ruth Davidson echoed that sentiment.

:13:59.:14:03.

We must repeat that we will not be beaten by the twisted ideology of

:14:04.:14:07.

terrorism. We must repeat that we will not ourselves descend into

:14:08.:14:12.

hatred or rage. We will repeat at, and repeat, and repeat that we stand

:14:13.:14:17.

tall. Kezia Dugdale imagined young girls

:14:18.:14:21.

at the big, bright eyed, clothed in pink, sparkling.

:14:22.:14:25.

For those children and young people who witnessed last night's

:14:26.:14:28.

abominable act, there is no softening the blow, they making it

:14:29.:14:31.

better, no suggesting that these things don't happen here, all to us,

:14:32.:14:36.

or to people but we know. Other leaders stressed that her and

:14:37.:14:40.

hate must not prevail. Our best response is to stand firm

:14:41.:14:45.

in solidarity. That means ensuring that terrorism never achieves its

:14:46.:14:50.

goal, but also that those who react to it out of hatred, prejudice and a

:14:51.:14:56.

demand for retribution also never achieve their goals.

:14:57.:15:03.

B the case that we said that we live for hope, joy and fellowship. We

:15:04.:15:08.

will work to end division. To stand and to join together in

:15:09.:15:10.

observing a minute's silence. With that off to sign the book of

:15:11.:15:26.

condolence, down cast, yes, but resolute. Brian Taylor, Reporting

:15:27.:15:31.

Scotland. A man has admitted abusing

:15:32.:15:34.

and assaulting his student 21-year-old Angus Milligan,

:15:35.:15:41.

from Edinburgh, admitted choking and slapping Emily Drouet at halls

:15:42.:15:46.

of residence in Aberdeen. The 18-year-old University

:15:47.:15:48.

of Aberdeen law student was found dead several days later

:15:49.:15:51.

in March last year. She came to uni and just didn't know

:15:52.:16:08.

how powerful a person she was. Drop dead gorgeous. Everyone will say the

:16:09.:16:11.

same. She honestly had a heard are heart of gold. Today Angus admitted

:16:12.:16:26.

slapping her. She asked for help. Days after the last assault, Emily

:16:27.:16:33.

took her own life. He stole Emily's future leaving a gaping wound in all

:16:34.:16:42.

our lives that will never ever heal. We misser every second of every day.

:16:43.:16:45.

No-one should have to go through what Emily went through. That is why

:16:46.:16:50.

we hope the courts will impose a custodial sentence, sending a strong

:16:51.:16:57.

message that domestic violence not be tolerated. Friends wished they

:16:58.:17:03.

had been able to help Emily. The university say they have enacted an

:17:04.:17:07.

action plan to extend their support services. There is no regrets from

:17:08.:17:12.

my time with her. The only regret would be knowing before hand, being

:17:13.:17:15.

able to help her. Everyone will feel exactly the same way. Wishing they

:17:16.:17:18.

could have done something. Wishing she had said something before hand.

:17:19.:17:24.

I guess it's frustrating because she had so much going for her.

:17:25.:17:30.

Milligan's lawyer said he will live with the knowledge he assaulted

:17:31.:17:34.

Emily and she took her own life a week later. He will be sentenced in

:17:35.:17:39.

July. Her family say they miss her every second of every day and want

:17:40.:17:45.

to do all they can to prevent any other family from going through what

:17:46.:17:46.

they're suffering. If you've been affected by any

of the issues in Fiona Stalker's report you can get help

in a near-miss with a plane making its descent into

Edinburgh Airport. The incident happened

:18:03.:18:03.

at lunchtime last Friday. The unmanned craft was flying

:18:04.:18:05.

around 25 metres away from a Loganair flight,

:18:06.:18:15.

at a height of around 4,000 feet. The pilot was forced

:18:16.:18:18.

to take evasive action. No-one was injured and the plane

successfully landed. Police believe the drone

some strong language. Michael oh Hanlon was a well-known

:19:00.:19:17.

competitor in body building events. He lifted the over all Mr Scotland

:19:18.:19:22.

title. More than 20 years sense he first won it, a massive comeback to

:19:23.:19:26.

form. Ian Robertson trained with Michael. I spoke to him, he was

:19:27.:19:34.

presented his sword, he went backstage and buzzing. The relief

:19:35.:19:38.

that he could still enter competition and be successful. He

was ebbing stackic backstage he was. His fiancee had will be been in a

:19:44.:19:49.

long-term relationship with Steven Kirkwood they had been exchanging

:19:50.:19:57.

abusive messages. That cull mill anywayed in a showdown.

:19:58.:20:03.

Michael oh Hanlon showed up and brought a pal. Mr Cowen is a former

:20:04.:20:11.

competitor in the World's Strongest Man contest. He could hear Michael

:20:12.:20:17.

and Steven shouting then they started fighting throwing punches.

:20:18.:20:21.

He saw that Kirkwood had an eight inch knife in his right hand.

:20:22.:20:27.

Michael had dropped to his knees. He went and trieded to hold him up. He

was unresponsive and bleeding heavily from his wounds. Kirkwood

:21:25.:21:32.

from ovarian cancer each year, but often the symptoms are spotted

:21:33.:21:36.

too late by women and their GPs. New research from the charity

Target Ovarian Cancer suggests more than a third of the women they spoke

correspondent, Shelley Jofre. I had an update meeting with my

:21:52.:22:07.

surgeons. What they are will do is an incision - Fiona is keeping a

:22:08.:22:16.

vlog of her cancer treatment. It involves removing my womb. Fiona was

:22:17.:22:23.

30 when she went to her GP in the summer of 2015. The doctor thought

:22:24.:22:27.

her symptoms were from recent surgery. Fiona was convinced it was

:22:28.:22:32.

ovarian cancer. I kept pursuing it and went back and forward and kept

:22:33.:22:36.

getting told, no it was the result from the surgery. I was referred to

:22:37.:22:40.

a gynaecologist and went through that same process of being told that

:22:41.:22:46.

it wasn't ovarian cancer until I did get diagnosed. It's a story we hear

:22:47.:22:50.

too often, women going to the GP, the symptoms being missed. It's

:22:51.:22:54.

important to remember that no GP wants to miss a cancer diagnosis. We

:22:55.:23:00.

do a lot of work with GPs here m Scotland raising awareness of the

:23:01.:23:04.

guidelines in place and the symptoms so they can make the early

:23:05.:23:13.

diagnosis. The charity Target Ovarian cancer is at Holyrood today.

:23:14.:23:18.

They found just 17% of women could name bloating as a symptom of

:23:19.:23:23.

ovarian cancer. 31% of women thought it could be detected through

:23:24.:23:28.

cervical screening. It can't. A woman diagnosed with the disease,

:23:29.:23:32.

36% had to visit their GP three times or more before being referred

:23:33.:23:39.

for tests. It took six visits for Fiona. GPs in Scotland, unlike the

:23:40.:23:44.

rest of the UK, can refer women on for blood tests and an ultrasound to

:23:45.:23:48.

be done together quickly. But that only helps if it's done early

:23:49.:23:54.

enough. I wasn't diagnosed until it was very advanced. My cancer is

:23:55.:24:00.

incurable. I want GPs to be I aware that young women ghetto rarian

else. F Oi iona and the campaign have the backing of the Royal

to be made. More health news for you.

:24:19.:24:29.

NHS Shetland patients travelling to Aberdeen to attend

:24:30.:24:31.

appointments will still be able to travel by plane.

:24:32.:24:33.

The health board had planned to send the majority of people

:24:34.:24:42.

by ferry, in an effort to save ?1 million.

:24:43.:24:44.

It would've meant a 12-hour trip instead of a one-hour flight -

:24:45.:24:47.

which sparked a number of public petitions.

:24:48.:24:48.

At a special meeting today, it was agreed

:24:49.:24:50.

Now the weather: I want to show you the pressure chart for the week

:24:51.:24:56.

ahead. It shows high pressure building over the next few days. We

:24:57.:24:58.

will see increasingly dry, sunny weather and increasingly warm

:24:59.:25:00.

weather as we drag in the warm continental air. Mid 20s

:25:01.:25:03.

temperatures by Friday is likely. Back to the here and now. Cloud and

:25:04.:25:08.

rain to get through. You can see on the earlier satellite and radar

:25:09.:25:12.

picture wet weather further east than we forecast today. A wet

:25:13.:25:16.

afternoon for some. The best of the sunshine to Shetland. Lovely picture

:25:17.:25:20.

from our weather watchers. Elsewhere it was cloudy and at times quite

:25:21.:25:25.

damp. That theme conditions over the next few hours with the rain to

:25:26.:25:30.

central and western parts, murky through Argyll, the Highlands and

:25:31.:25:32.

Islands, particularly around the coast. Further east, dryer. There

:25:33.:25:35.

will be clear spells to Aberdeenshire. Look at the

:25:36.:25:39.

temperatures overnight. No lower than 13 or 14 for central and

:25:40.:25:43.

southern Scotland. Mild indeed. We start the day tomorrow it will be a

:25:44.:25:47.

cloudy, grey start for many. Again drizzly across the north-west. Early

:25:48.:25:51.

sunshine to the north-east, cloud will build, come and go at times. By

:25:52.:25:55.

the afternoon the wet weather in the north-west will clear. Many areas

:25:56.:25:59.

will be dry. If we take a closer look around 4.00pm. You will notice

:26:00.:26:03.

that whilst it is mostly dry across the south there could be one or two

:26:04.:26:08.

showers across the southern uplands. Cloud, sunshine, but temperatures

:26:09.:26:17.

20-22. Further west cooler, but dry. There could be one or two showers in

:26:18.:26:22.

the Cairngorms and moving east. Different day in store for vet

:26:23.:26:25.

Shetland compared with today. Cloudy and damp for you tomorrow. The rest

:26:26.:26:29.

of the afternoon into the evening the rain with us across Shetland.

:26:30.:26:32.

Elsewhere largely dry. Late spells of sunshine. Thursday, the wind

:26:33.:26:37.

direction starts to change. It's more sorely. That means we are

:26:38.:26:43.

introducing dryer air, less cloud, warmer air. Temperatures into the

:26:44.:26:47.

low 20s. Come Friday the temperatures continue to rise. We

:26:48.:26:52.

could be up to 25, maybe 26 degrees at times with a fair amount of

:26:53.:26:56.

sunshine and that sunshine extending towards Shetland as well which will

:26:57.:27:01.

have a fairly and at times damp week up until that point.

:27:02.:27:05.

Our next update is after the Ten O'Clock news.

:27:06.:27:16.

Two girls are still missing from last nights attack. They attended

:27:17.:27:23.

the concert at Manchester Arena they have failed to make contact with

:27:24.:27:26.

their families who travelled to Manchester to spend the day there.

:27:27.:27:27.

We will keep you up dated. Our next update is after

:27:28.:27:31.

the Ten O'Clock news. Until then, from everyone

:27:32.:27:33.

on the team - right Below me, hundreds of people have

:27:34.:27:48.

just been leaving Albert Square It is just one of the many ways this

:27:49.:27:51.

city is coming to terms The newly elected Mayor

:27:52.:27:56.

of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, has said the city will show

:27:57.:28:01.

it's true spirit. As our special correspondent

:28:02.:28:05.

Fergal Keane reports now Our cities cannot live in constant

:28:06.:28:11.

fear of terror, however So when the night

:28:12.:28:17.

is torn by violence, there is shock, there is strength

:28:18.:28:23.

and there are questions. Is today we asked the

:28:24.:28:25.

Mancunians we met to speak Kind of, when's it

:28:26.:28:33.

going to end, really? It's incredibly sad and our way

:28:34.:28:45.

of life, you know, is sort of being controlled by it now,

:28:46.:28:48.

as much as we don't want it to be. We're such a united

:28:49.:28:51.

city and it's just It's quite harrowing to think

:28:52.:28:53.

what happened last night. It's very devastating and how young

:28:54.:28:56.

people are that fell victim to it, You wouldn't expect it for anywhere,

:28:57.:28:59.

but of Manchester, it's a welcoming You don't expect things

:29:00.:29:08.

like this to happen here, but It makes you scared

:29:09.:29:12.

at first, but you just realise you can't let fear win

:29:13.:29:15.

and you get on with it. You thank the emergency

:29:16.:29:18.

services for all they've done and, yeah, it's

:29:19.:29:20.

Manchester, life goes on. Yet also a place of

:29:21.:29:22.

emphatic declaration. We ask that you allow the

:29:23.:29:41.

perpetrators of this evil, evil action, ala, bring them to justice.

:29:42.:29:46.

It's hard. How can I, if I had one of the victim's fathers, let's say,

:29:47.:29:50.

or someone who lost their daughter or son in yesterday's attack and I'm

:29:51.:29:56.

saying to him, George, Alan, this is nothing to do with us. He knows the

:29:57.:30:01.

person who did it adhered to a so-called faith. It's hard to talk

:30:02.:30:04.

to a person like that, to say this is nothing to do with the faith. I'm

:30:05.:30:09.

saying to people publicly and privately, we have to distance our

:30:10.:30:13.

faith from these barbaric terrorists. That's what they are.

:30:14.:30:16.

They are criminals with criminal mind sets. People here already knew

:30:17.:30:20.

what it meant to face and recover from terrorist violence. An IRA bomb

:30:21.:30:29.

devastated Manchester City centre i 1996. Three years earlier, in nearby

:30:30.:30:34.

Warrington, an IRA bomb killed three-year-old Jonathan Ball and

:30:35.:30:41.

12-year-old Tim CAP Parry. Tim's father, Colin, became a peace

:30:42.:30:47.

campaigner. Today he was thinking of the burden of parents' grief.

:30:48.:30:52.

Closing a child is the most awful event in anybody's life and there's

:30:53.:30:59.

no easy way to say you'll one day get over it, you will one day

:31:00.:31:03.

recover. You might, you might not. The feelings are deep, deep, they

:31:04.:31:07.

are almost animal-like. You lock everything down. You go inside on

:31:08.:31:11.

yourself. The fact that terrorism is part of the collective memory of

:31:12.:31:15.

this city does nothing to reduce the sense of raw shock felt here today.

:31:16.:31:20.

Manchester's past experience does remind us of the resilience of

:31:21.:31:24.

democracies in the face of terrorist campaigns. And of the strength of

:31:25.:31:34.

the bonds of community. After terror attacks the word "defiance" is often

:31:35.:31:37.

used. There is that here, but the communal sense of grief that is most

:31:38.:31:44.

profound. Ferg app Keane, BBC News, Manchester. Huw uw Edwards will be

:31:45.:31:50.

back here with the latest from the BBC's news at ten. That's all from

:31:51.:31:53.

us. Before we go, I'll leave you with some of the images of the day.

:31:54.:31:59.

A day of emotion, deviance and solidarity. Goodbye. Always

:32:00.:32:06.

remember, never forget, forever Manchester. Choose love, Manchester,

:32:07.:32:10.

thank you.
