British police say at least 19 people have been killed in a blast at a concert in Manchester and are treating it as a "terrorist incident".

"A gentleman said 'run!' so we ran".

"We believe, at this stage, the attack last night was conducted by one man", Manchester Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said.

The attack sparked a nightlong search for loved-ones - parents for the children they had accompanied or had been waiting to pick up, and friends for each other after groups were scattered by the blast.

Some 59 people were also injured in the blast when the attacker detonated an improvised explosive device at the Manchester Arena.

The wounded were showered with glass and metal nuts after a "huge bomb-like bang" went off at as people waited to leave the arena after the show finished.
