Police Federation of England and Wales chair Steve White said: "Once again the service has been rocked by the devastating news that a member of the police family has lost their life because of the murderous actions of a terrorist.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of everybody affected at this difficult time.”

Some 20 people are in critical conditions and are being treated for "horrific injuries" following the Manchester terror attack, a senior NHS official has said.

Jon Rouse, chief officer of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, confirmed that some people have life-threatening injuries.

Speaking to the BBC Mr Rouse said: "They've been the sort of traumatic injuries that you would expect in terms of the type of device used, the proximity to the people who were injured.

"We're dealing with injuries to major organs, we're dealing with loss of limbs potentially, we're dealing with embedded objects, all the horrific injuries that you would expect from the event that happened."

He continued that the victims were receiving "round-the-clock" treatment.

Of the 59 people injured in the suicide bombing, 12 were children.
