Ariana Grande fan films star performing minutes before deadly terror attack

ONE Ariana Grande fan filmed the US pop star in Manchester just moments before a deadly terrorist bomb was detonated.

Fans can be seen clapping and swaying their hands as the singer performs "Dangerous Woman" at Manchester Arena on Monday evening.

Moments later witnesses said they heard a “massive bang” which led to crowds fleeing the venue in a mass panic.

At least 22 people have been killed and 59 injured during the terrorist bomb attack – with police confirming children were among the dead.

Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins said the lone male attacker, who died in the blast, was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated.

He added: "This has been the most horrific incident we have had to face in Greater Manchester and one that we all hoped we would never see.

"Families and many young people were out to enjoy a concert at the Manchester Arena and have lost their lives.

"Our thoughts are with those 22 victims that we now know have died, the 59 people who have been injured and their loved ones.

"We continue to do all we can to support them."
