Two local girls lost their lives in the attack, Saffie Rose Roussos, a local Tarleton Community Primary School pupil, was at the concert with her mother Lisa Roussos and Saffie's sister, Ashlee Bromwich. Also Georgina Callander, 18, who studied at Runshaw College and was a massive fan of the pop-star lost her life on Monday night.

A vigil was held at Marks Sq, Tarleton on Tuesday night where locals released pink balloons, laid flowers, lit candles and left teddy bears for the victims. Bishop John Goddard, who lives in the village, lead a 20 minute service in the square attended by around 1,000 people, many of them children. He said: “The local community are shocked and devastated at the loss of Saffie and Georgina. I feel privileged to be asked to do this, and tonight is so important, because we are showing ways of peace and support for the families that will overcome evil."

Huntapac Produce offer their deepest sympathy for those affected by the attack.
