We need to work with that community [the Muslim community], not alienate them by deporting people behind closed doors

Body art lovers get bee tattoos as a symbol of unity

A symbol unique to Manchester has risen through the tragedy as people have lined up to get a bee tattoo to show their solidarity for victims of this week's terrorist attack.

To locals the worker bee represents Manchester's hard-working ethic during the Industrial Revolution, when the textile mills were considered hives of activity.

Those getting the tattoo are donating £50 to those affected by Monday night's bombing, which killed 22 people.

Nick Dixon visited a tattoo parlour where he spoke to tattoo artist Bex Williamson and some of her most recent clients, including Molly, who was at the arena on the night of the attack.

Enough is enough [...] we need to fight fire with fire

– Steve Howe

Steve Howe, who tragically lost his wife Alison in Monday night's attack in Manchester, joined us today to tell us that he thinks the police and security services should do more to prevent further attacks.

Alison, 45, had gone to Manchester Arena with her friend Lisa Lees to pick up their daughters who had attended the Ariana Grande concert. Both women were killed after Salman Abedi detonated a bomb in the foyer.

Speaking of the terrorists who carry out such atrocities, Steve told GMB he wants all suspects dealt with, telling Ben and Kate: "We need to be as extreme as they are."

"I can't even put into words what it's been like, I really can't. I can't describe the pain. We're broken in half. But I still have enough in me to do something about this, if other people will help me."

Brendan Cox on life after an attack: 'Terrorists want us to fall apart'

What terrorists want us to do, is fall apart, to blame each other, to turn on ourselves

– Brendan Cox

Brendan Cox, the husband of murdered MP Jo Cox, has told Good Morning Britain that the country must come together to defeat terrorists.

Of learning about the Manchester attack, Brendan said: “I just felt lost. The scale of it and the supreme evil of it [...] It’s even harder when there’s an attack on this scale because it’s very hard to tell all the stories about those amazing individuals, I think we have a duty to try and do that.”

He added: “I do think there is a moment in our country at the moment where people feel that there is this pressure, that there is this narrative about hatred, that there are events like this that tear us apart, and I always asks myself, what is it the terrorists or the extremists want us to do?

Top five headlines you're waking up to

  1. Counter-terrorism agencies are investigating a "network" in connection with the Manchester bombing, police have confirmed, as it emerged an off-duty female officer was killed in the atrocity. A minute's silence will be held later this morning at 11am in remembrance of those who lost their lives or were affected by the attack.

  2. The arrested younger brother of the Manchester suicide bomber knew of his attack plans and was plotting terror in Tripoli, according to Libyan security officials.
    Hashem Abedi was arrested in the Libyan capital having travelled to the city from the UK on April 16, Libya's counter-terrorism force said.

  3. UK security officials have angrily condemned the US leaking of images appearing to show the blood-stained remnants of the Manchester suicide bomber's detonator and backpack. The pictures, published in the New York Times, show torn scraps from a blue Karrimor rucksack along with screws and nuts after the Manchester Arena blast.

  4. Ariana Grande has suspended the rest of her tour, her spokesman has said. The US singer had just finished performing at the Manchester Arena on Monday night when the suicide bomber struck. In a statement, her spokesman said: "Due to the tragic events in Manchester, the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost. Refunds will be granted to all ticket holders at the point of purchase for the following cancelled shows."

  5. People in Manchester are getting bee tattoos to raise money for the families of the victims of the attack. Tattooists across the city have been creating a buzz by inking the skin of people willing to give a £50 donation. The worker bee is a symbol of Manchester's hard-working history, during the Industrial Revolution.

Britain's threat level increases to critical

In the wake of the Manchester terror attack Britain's threat levels have increased from severe to critical, which means further attack could be imminent.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd joined us to explain the decision to raise the threat levels and expects the change "to be temporary".

The Home Secretary reassured the public that despite the raise in threat levels, Britain are fully "prepared" to cope and have the "best police and intelligent service in the world".
