Theresa May has suspended her General Election campaign after the suspected terrorist attack in Manchester.

The Prime Minister, who will chair a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee, said the incident at Manchester Arena was being treated by police as an “appalling terrorist attack”.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron cancelled a planned campaign visit to Gibraltar after 19 people were confirmed dead following the blast at an Ariana Grande pop concert.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it was a “terrible incident” and his thoughts were with those affected.

Mrs May said: “We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack.

“All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected.”

Mr Farron said “This is a shocking and horrific attack targeting children and young people who were simply enjoying a concert.”

The pause in Mrs May’s campaign was confirmed by the Conservative Party.
