Woman named "angel of Manchester" after rescuing 50 children from bombing

It was her wedding anniversary and she and her husband were going home after dinner from Victoria station, next to the arena, when the bomb went off.

There are also reports that a hotel near the venue has taken in dozens of children following an explosion that killed 19 people and injured around 50 others.

"We have got about 50 kids with us waiting to be picked up, they are safe we will look after them". The 48-year-old said she took dozens of girls to a nearby hotel and posted her phone number on social media, telling anxious parents to meet her there, according to Reuters. "I love them both and wouldn't know what to do without them".

Sarah Donohoe‏ said: "Double bed & double air bed available at our flat near Piccadilly if anyone affected needs a place to stay #roomformanchester #manchester".

Again, the good people of Manchester rose to the occasion by tweeting the locations and opening hours of blood donor centres across the city.

Karan Khanna, vice president Operations of the International Hotel Group, the parent company which owns the hotel chain, told IBTimes UK: "Our thoughts are with all the victims of this horrendous tragedy as well as their friends and family and the people of Manchester".

Desperate parents who had not heard from their kids since the concert posted details on social media.

Eight hospitals in the area were at capacity following the attack.

Extra medics were reportedly drafted in at Wythenshawe Hospital to help in the aftermath of the incident.

Ms Robinson said this morning she was no longer with the children and recommended anxious parents and guardians call the official number instead of her mobile.

Mr Govender praised the bravery of emergency services workers and said he would open the cathedral for a vigil once the police let him in.

"There are a number of confirmed fatalities and others injured".

Transport services were on lockdown after the attack and roads were blocked by emergency vehicles, making the taxi drivers' role crucial.
