Election campaign halted after Manchester terrorist attack

A suspected terrorist suicide-bomb attack at the Manchester Arena following a pop concert has left 22 dead and many more injured – the worst attack of its kind since the 7/7 London bombings. Politicians have responded in solidarity by halting election campaigning for the day and Prime Minister, Teresa May, has announced the UK general election will also be postponed for 24 hours. EU leaders have begun sending their messages of condolences after the second terrorist attack on British soil in a little over a month.
