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.
Residents of North Yorkshire are being urged to seek support if they have been affected by the Manchester attack.
Julia Mulligan, the North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, has said: “I’m devastated to hear about the horrific attack that targeted teenagers, children and their families in Manchester, it’s a shocking and senseless loss of life of people who were just out to enjoy themselves."

Durham Police are asking people to remain calm and vigilant after the Prime Minister raised the UK's terror threat level from 'severe' to 'critical', last night.
It means another terrorist attack is considered imminent. It follows a suicide bomb attack on Monday at the Manchester Arena in which 22 people were killed and 59 injured. Four people from the North East and two from York are still missing.
Raising the level to 'critical' means that military personnel could be deployed to support armed police officers.
The Chief Constable of Northumbria Police has also reassured the public following the events in Manchester.
It may look and feel different today but we are there to protect the public. Stay alert but calm.
