Manchester attack: Ariana Grande visits injured children in hospital

Ariana Grande has visited children injured in the Manchester bombing in hospital.

On Friday evening the pop star visited the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, where many of the youngsters wounded in the attack after her gig at Manchester Arena on May 22 have been treated.

Posting photos of the visit on Facebook, Peter Mann, whose daughter was injured in the attack, wrote: "This means more to us than all the amazing things people have done this week.

"So happy she came I could burst!"

The singer was also photographed with dozens of other patient at the hospital including 14-year-old Evie Mills, who was previously visited by the Queen in the same hospital days after the attack.

After her visit to the hospital Grande also shared one of her own pictures of her visiting with injured fan Lily Harrison on her official Instagram.

The picture was accompanied simply with an emoticon of a heart.

The American singer has returned to the UK ahead of a benefit show in Manchester on Sunday, and was photographed stepping off a plane at a London airport earlier in the day on Friday.

It comes less than two weeks after the attack which killed 22 of her fans and their parents.

She will be joined by other musicians including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Take That and Miley Cyrus for the One Love Manchester event on Sunday.

Proceeds from the concert will go towards the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund to support grieving families and victims of the bombing.
