Theresa May describes Manchester bomb as worst ever terror attack to hit Northern England
Speaking outside 10 Downing Street UK Prime Minister Theresa May added that the Manchester attack was ‘among the worst terrorism we have experienced in the United Kingdom.’
She said that security services ‘believe they know the identity of the attacker but we cannot confirm his name.’
She said we struggle to understand the warped and twisted minds that see children as a target.
Ther Prime Minister said: ‘The cowardice of the attacker was met by the bravery of the emergency services and the people of Manchester.’
Many of the injured, she confirmed, have life-threatening injuries.
She added that the terrorism threat level remains at ‘severe’ and it will be assessed throughout today.
She will visit Manchester later this afternoon where she will meet the mayor of the city, Andy Burnham.
