'We heard the explosions, rescued as many as we could, and ran for our lives'

On Monday night, 22 people were killed and 150 people were injured after a planned terror attack at Manchester's MEN arena. The victims had been enjoying an Ariana Grande concert when the explosion went off in the venue's foyer. The attacker, named as 22-year-old Salman Abedi died at the scene.

Thankfully, a number of people managed to escape the venue physically unharmed. Chloe Nayman had been at the concert with her daughter Cherry, her partner Andy and his daughter Halle. They fled from the arena and even managed to save others.
