A Newcastle taxi company is sending its cars to Manchester to bring home those from the North East who are stranded following the explosion.
Staff at Blue Line Taxis are bringing people home for free and members of the public have been in touch to offer to do this same.
It comes after 22 people were killed at an explosion at Manchester Arena on Monday night.
"To wake up this morning, I couldn't comprehend what had happened in Manchester. I thought if I had family there, I'd want them home.
We had a meeting and decided that this would be a good thing to do. The response from drivers has been amazing. They were all willing to go and help out wherever they could. We have even had members of public calling to offer extra vehicles."
People from the North East can show their support to those affected by the explosion in Manchester by attending a vigil in Newcastle.
The event will be held at Grey's Monument at 5pm.
It has been set up by Newcastle's Peace & Unity initiative to pay tribute to the 22 people who have died and to show support to the families of those who are missing.
