Since news broke of a horrific explosion at Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande concert, police have confirmed 19 dead and around 50 injured.

Ariana and her team have since issued a statement responding to the incident.

“Tonight, our hearts are broken,” it reads. “Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack.”

“We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester’s first responders who rushed towards danger to help save lives.

“We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.”

Ariana also published a short message on Twitter to express her heartbreak.

There really are no right words to address this horrific situation.
