"I'm 10 mins away from the arena and if anyone needs food drinks or charge your phone or a sofa or anything get in touch #roomformanchester," a tweet user posted.
Even hotel chains have pitched in and are taking in children who have been separated from the parents "Holiday Inn Manchester is taking in children without parents. Call 0161 836 9600. Be safe â¤ï¸#ManchesterArena #roomformanchester," the hotel chain posted on Twitter.
Gurudwaras in Manchester have also opened their doors for anyone in distress. "Sikh Temples in Manchester, UK offering food & accommodation. They are open for ALL people."
In one of the worst terrorist attacks in recent British history, at east 19 people were killed and over 50 others injured when a suspected suicide bomb went off in the middle of international pop star Ariana Grande's concert at Manchester Arena. The tragedy has been condemned widely, especially because most of the Grande fans were children.
