Manchester attack: Hundreds attend vigil one week on

Hundreds of people have paid an emotional tribute to the victims of the Manchester suicide bombing, exactly one week on from the attack.

People filled Manchester's St Ann's Square, which has become an unofficial memorial site for the 22 people killed and more than 100 injured in the blast, and stood in quiet contemplation, then at the time of the explosion they broke into applause.

Shortly after the applause at 10.31pm chants of "Manchester" and the singing of Oasis' Don't Look Back In Anger - the anthem of a city determined not to be defined by terrorism - broke the silence.

The vigil came as anti-terror police appealed for information about a blue suitcase bomber Salman Abedi was carrying on the day of the deadly attack.
