This follows the terrorist incident at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester Arena last month which saw 22 people, including a number if children, die.

The One Love Manchester concert featured a number of world-famous acts, including Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Oasis and raised £2.7 million in funds, according to the Manchester Evening News.
