Manchester, England - People at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester arena are fleeing after a loud explosion went off in the area.

Multiple fatalities have been confirmed, according to The Guardian. Law enforcement is warning everybody to stay away from the area while they deal with a "serious incident."

Concert-goer Hannah Dane told The Guardian there was “quite a loud explosion heard from inside the Manchester arena and it shook, then everyone screamed and tried to get out.”

“As we got outside, lots of police came racing towards the area and the whole of the Victoria train station was surrounded by police.” She added, “screaming and crying everywhere shouting that there’s a bomb and also people were saying there’s a shooter.”

Majid Khan, 22, said: “I and my sister, along with a lot of others were seeing Ariana Grande perform at Manchester Arena, and we were all exiting the venue when around 10:40-10:45pm-ish a huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena.

“It was one bang and essentially everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us as they were trying to exit Trinity Way and that was blocked so everyone was just running to any exit they could find as quickly as they could.

“Everyone was in a huge state of panic, calling each other as some had gone to the toilet whilst this had gone off, so it was just extremely disturbing for everyone there.”
