Greater Manchester Police have named several of the victims killed in Monday night's terror attack.

Twenty-two people died when a suicide bomber attacked an Ariana Grande concert at the city's main stadium.

The police have tweeted out photos of some of those killed, along with tributes from their family and friends.

Formal identification is still ongoing.

Police say in a statement: "It will take some days before formal identification can take place but we are assisting the families who want to provide a tribute to their loved ones.

"To be clear this is not formal identification and is part of our efforts to support the families".

A minute silence was held across the UK earlier to remember them.

Officers and staff of Greater Manchester Police took part outside the force's headquarters.

Britain's Queen Elzabeth II has described the bombing as "very wicked" as she visited victims being treated in hospital.

She also met paramedics who were first on the scene and staff who worked through the night at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital in the aftermath of Monday's attack.

Twelve children under the age of 16 - among the 64 casualties - were taken to the hospital by ambulance following the terror attack.
