With former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment tweeting “My blood is boiling. I’m filled with anger. I wish I could do something to help. I feel hepless towards the situation. 💔”

A local mother Lorraine Butler tweeted “Manchester you are in my thoughts god bless from Essex 💔💔💔💔”

Harlow Parliamentary candidate Phil Waite “My thoughts are with families & friends of those affected by this incident & with the community & emergency services responding #Manchester”

The prime minister Theresa May has suspended her campaign for the upcoming general election and will chair a meeting of the government’s emergency Cobra committee later, in response to the attack.
