Ariana Grande One Love Manchester gig will go ahead, police confirm

Following the devastating attack – which saw a van hit passers by and three men stab people – fans have aired their concern over the Ariana Grande One Love concert.

However, despite growing worries, police have confirmed the gig in Manchester – which will see the likes of Justin Bieber, Little Mix and Take That perform – will go ahead. Greater Manchester Police has confirmed this morning the event, due to be held at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, will go ahead but security will be stepped up. 
Reports have suggested the concert, which is being held to raise money for all those involved in the suicide bombing, will have a "ring of steel" of police officers around the arena.

As part of the operation, hundreds of armed and unarmed officers have been called up to assist with security at the event. It has been reported that officers will be present throughout the concert, and will be providing security right up until the moment the last ticket holders exit the grounds.

The tickets for the gig – which also includes Usher, Robbie Williams and Niall Horan – sold out within six minutes of going on sale. Ariana was one of the first celebrities to pay tribute following the London Bridge attack on Saturday night.
