Mourners hold vigil for victims of terror attack in Manchester

Hundreds of mourners paid emotional tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack, exactly one week after Salman Abedi wrought death and destruction on the city.

People of all ages stood alongside each other in quiet contemplation shortly after 10.30pm, at St Ann's Square, the site that has become the unofficial memorial site for the 22 people killed and more than 100 injured in last Monday's Manchester Arena blast.

The vigil, illuminated by the gentle light from hundreds of tea candles, was a moment of quiet reflection for a city united in grief.

It came as anti-terror police appealed for information about a blue suitcase Abedi was carrying on the day of the deadly Manchester bombing.
