One Woman Is Being Praised For Helping Teens After The Manchester Attack

Locals and hotel offer shelter to concert-goers caught up in blast chaos Holiday Inn Hotel near Manchester Arena takes in hundreds of stranded children who fled the scene in horror

The outpouring of support has been so rampant that a Facebook post listing the address and phone number of the Holiday Inn Express was shared over 75,000 times in the first four hours after being uploaded. "We have taken as many kids as can to [the] Holiday Inn", she wrote in a Facebook post.

The disgusting terrorist attack left at least 22 people dead, a lot of them under the age of 18, while over 50 others were injured.

"Our thoughts are with those 22 victims that we now know have died, the 59 people who have been injured and their loved ones".

A member of the public has been praised for her actions following reports that she led a number of unaccompanied youngsters to safety in the immediate aftermath of the suicide bombing at Manchester Arena on Monday evening.

The hotel added in a statement: "There is an emergency line available for those concerned about loved ones or anyone who may have been in the area last night - 0161 856 9400".

The Holiday Inn spokesperson also said people should call the official helpline instead of the hotel directly. That poster included a picture of her and other people who were not at the concert. "In terms of children being brought to that hotel on Goadsby Road, that was incorrect".

She took them to a nearby hotel, and quickly shared a contact number on social media along with a message for any anxious parents that might be looking for their children.

Meanwhile, Twitter users rallied to help each other under the hashtag #roomformanchester, offering anything from a place to stay, a ride or even a plug to charge their phones. Health workers visiting Manchester for a conference offered to help ease the pressure.

Paula has since left the children and has asked that people ring the appropriate authorities.

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

"We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young people not as a scene to cherish but as a scene for carnage".

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that a 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the bomb attack at the Ariana Grande concert.
