Manchester sends its support to Barcelona.

Senior figures across Manchester have sent messages of condolence to Barcelona following the terror incident earlier.

Officials have confirmed 13 people have died and more than 50 have been injured after a van mounted a pavement in Barcelona.

It follows what the country's Department of the Interior described as "a massive trampling on the Ramblas in Barcelona by a person with a van".

Greater Manchester's Chief Constable Ian Hopkins has tweeted his support.

And Sue Murphy, deputy leader of Manchester City Council, said: "Our hearts go out to Barcelona in the wake of this sickening incident. Manchester stands in solidarity with that great city. We know from recent experience both how devastating this sort of attack is and how important international solidarity, community spirit and a refusal to give in to terror are in dealing with its aftermath."
