Manchester Bombing Anniversary

4 years on people flock to support the 22 and their families.

Twenty-two people were killed when a bomb was detonated at the Manchester Arena on 22 May 2017.

Hundreds more were injured and thousands of lives were ripped apart by the attack which took place at the end of an Ariana Grande concert.

Yesterday which was the eve of the fourth anniversary of the bombing, survivors and people who were affected by the bombing talk about how they are starting to heal and tell their stories of hope for the future.

Millie Tomlinson was 17 at the time of the blast. She was just feet away from the bomb when it was detonated and was seriously injured. 

She left college a few months after the attack.

"I just couldn't cope with the work and my injuries," she said.

A few years on, Millie is now studying at Salford University and is positive about her future.

"I feel very lucky, I feel determined about getting good grades and being able to do what I want to do," she said.

She said she was "a different me" after the bomb and added: "I think the different me is a better version because now I've got such a resilience.

"I feel like it's helped me become a better person."

Ariana Granda also took the her social media this morning to post her support with this photo.
