Heard it's a nail bomb. Probably bullshit

There's a lot of misinformation at the moment. Bomb does seem likely though. Without any official comments though it's all speculation. 

Its a fucked up world we live in when kids are a target.

quote from the media `

 'We were exiting the building when it happened. We'd headed towards the main doors as Ariana was performing the last song because we wanted to beat the crowds, but – as we made our way there - a wall of security men blocked it and told us to go the other way.

'Seconds later they shouted 'RUN!' and the explosion happened right behind them. Hundreds of people were running and screaming. Those men saved our lives.'

They will be the last to know. It is on lockdown apparently.

The world is fucked up. The arena tragedy is being treated as a terrorist incident. What on earth makes someone go to a concert full with kids and set off a bomb? It is just utterly sickening. I feel sick. Does not matter what city you are from, what religion, sex or anything else you are. This is just an utterly horrific and cowardly attack against all of us normal and decent people who just want to live a peaceful life.

I honestly don't know what else to say. Can't really describe how I am feeling at present.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said: 'This is a shocking and horrific attack targeting children and young people who were simply enjoying a concert.

'My deepest sympathies are with the victims, and with families who have lost loved ones, as well as those desperately waiting for news.

'I would like to pay tribute to the bravery and dedication of the emergency services.

'This is an attack on innocent people and the nation is united both in its grief and its determination to stand up to this deplorable attack.


Not that im a follower of farron but definitely an attack then if thats the language being used

We were at a concert at the Ritz not too far from the Arena. Pretty scary. We have another concert tomorrow night at the Albert Hall...

Jesus. I really hope it was some kind of tragic accident. Don't want to think that people can be so awful to target children at a pop concert.

so outside the venue apparently. 

The foyer is 'public space' as is the train station etc. All part of the same indoor building but open to everyone as the first security checks are between foyer and the concourse.

Between all the trolls, racists and sick twats social media is not a pretty place to be right now.  

Where the explosion seems to have happened is between the arena exit and train station.

Even though this awful event has happened, this will not stop me going to a concert tomorrow just as I went to a gig after the horrendous attack in the bataclan.

Essentially, fuck these twats who do these awful things. I'm going to go about my business as I would, with hopefully beefed up security at all concert venues.

People think that tighter security is the answer. It's not, it just inconveniences people and moves the problem on.

Tonight, they thought they couldn't get in the stadium so they blew up the area by the exit instead. Try telling the families of the dead that good security helped them.

No matter what you do, terrorists will attack a weaker link. And there will always be vulnerable crowds. Look how we've had people driving into crowds in cars. No amount of police patrolling and bag checks will ever stop that.

Lost for words, shocking. Why target an audience mainly made up of teenagers, parents and children. Thoughts are with anyone touched by this barbaric act.
