In a statement released through Lancashire County Council, the school's principal Chris Upton said, "news of Saffie's death in this appalling attack has come as a tremendous shock to all of us and I would like to send our deepest condolences to all of her family and friends".

A neighbour and family friend has revealed Lisa has no idea her daughter is dead as she is now in a coma in hospital, The Sun reports.

Taking to Twitter, the Big Brother favourite shared an article paying tribute to school girl Saffie Rose Roussos, who was named as the second victim from the attack, on May 22. Saffie attended Monday's show with her mom and sister, both of whom remain in the hospital, the Guardian reported.

Following the attack, which took place at around 10:30pm, the area around the Manchester Arena has remained in lockdown as authorities continue with their investigations. She'd travelled to a fan expo in Blackpool, England to meet the cast members of her beloved fantasy TV series, but she was missing a photograph alongside David, who plays Princess Jasmine. It is understood that they are being treated in hospital.

"The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking", he said.

"Saffie was quiet and unassuming with a creative flair".

Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy confirmed to CNN that Callander, who was a student at the school between the ages of 11 and 16, was among the dead.

"Our deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers go out to all of Georgina's family, friends, and all of those affected by this loss".

"We are offering all available support possible at this tragic time, including counselling with our dedicated student support team".

"It is with enormous sadness that it appears that one of the people who lost their lives in Monday's Manchester attack was one of our students here at Runshaw College", she statement said.

"All of our students will gather together today for a time of prayer and reflection and to give thanks for the life of Georgina".

The teenager's friends quickly began shared pictures of Callander on social media, using the hashtag #manchesterattack. Further details were not immediately available, though a GoFundMe page was quickly established in Atkinson's memory.

Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said: "This has been the most horrific incident we have had to face in Greater Manchester and one that we all hoped we could never see".

Freak Dance Radcliffe, a dance studio in his hometown, described Atkinson as a "member of our dance family" in a post on Facebook.

One close friend wrote that her "whole body feels numb" after learning the news this morning.

"Families and many young people were out to enjoy a concert at the Manchester Arena and have lost their lives".

Eyewitness Shauna spoke to us about what she experienced last night.
