Young people in attendance of the benefit concert for the victims of an attack in Manchester two weeks ago, have expressed sadness and resilience on Sunday, just hours after an attack in London killed at least seven people and wounded dozens. "Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before".

The incident is the third terror attack in the United Kingdom in three months following the auto and knife attack in Westminster in March, killing five people, and the Manchester bombing at Ariana's concert which left 22 people dead.

Police said security was going to be raised and concertgoers were asked not to bring bags into the arena.

One Twitter user wrote: 'Why does Will I Am think he's in London?'

The statement followed on from Grande's own tweet about the terror attack in London on Saturday night.

This evening, the highly anticipated One Love Manchester benefit concert will take place in Manchester, and we've compiled all the information you need to know about the special gig, which is being headlined by Ariana Grande.

He explained that there will be more armed officers at the concert, additional security checks, and bag searches, and suggested that attendees not bring a bag if they can.

The event will take places at the Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of the Metropolitan Police said: "At this stage, we believe that six people have died in addition to the three attackers shot dead by police".

A host of other networks will carry the concert event, which is being produced by the BBC, for viewing outside of the United States. He called the event a "statement that hatred and fear will never win". "I want to thank you so much for coming together and being so loving and strong and unified", she said, adding that their unity is "the medicine that the world really needs right now". Obviously the list of stars involved is incredible, and without a doubt it will be a huge TV draw in the United Kingdom but with people like Ariana Grande, Coldplay, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry involved the global appeal is enormous.

"We plan to honor them with courage, bravery, and defiance in the face of fear. All proceeds from each sale of the track featured on the page will be donated to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund in coordination with the British Red Cross".

Tipping says: "We can't let them stop us".

Grande is headlining the show, which will also feature performances from Justin Bieber, Little Mix, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Take That, Niall Horan, Coldplay, Marcus Mumford, and Pharrell Williams.
