Ariana Grande's mum helped fans to safety during concert attack

Ariana Grande's mum escorted fans at her daughter's Manchester concert to safety after the terrorist attack there on Monday night.

Joan Grande was in the front row at Manchester Arena watching her daughter perform when the explosion took place at the end of the gig, TMZ reports.

She quickly ushered a number of children backstage to safety and waited with them until it was safe to leave, according to reports.

Joan was yesterday spotted landing in Boca Raton, Florida with Ariana after the singer and her team flew back to the US yesterday.

Ariana's Dangerous Woman World Tour is currently suspended.

Meanwhile, the bomber in the attack has been identified as a 22 year-old British-born man.

Salman Abedi was named by police as the suspected perpetrator in the incident that killed 22 people.

The Greater Manchester Police is now working to establish whether Abedi worked alone to plot the attack, according to the BBC.

A vigil was held yesterday at Manchester's Albert Square to honour the victims of the attack.
