Manchester’s Arndale shopping centre has been evacuated with video footage showing armed police escorting a man from the building.
Witnesses have described how people have fled the shopping centre in panic over rumours of a bomb threat.
It comes after last night’s devastating terror attack at the Manchester Arena which left 22 people dead.
One eyewitness described the scene as “mass hysteria” with hundreds running from the building.
The first victim has now been named as Georgina Bethany Callander.
The 18-year-old Ariana Grande superfan, who was pictured with the pop star two year ago, was killed in a blast police have confirmed was detonated by a lone suicide bomber.
Actor Sean Maguire took to Twitter to pay his respects to the “young and sweet” teenager who reportedly died in hospital with her mum at her bedside.
“Just met this girl in April,” he said. “She was killed last night in Manchester. My love to her and all the families of the victims.”
Georgina was one of at least 22 people killed in the blast last night.
