Ariana Grande has sent "light and warmth" to the victims of the Manchester terrorist attack.

"I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day", Grande wrote on Tuesday.

The school choir which accompanied Ariana Grande at the One Love Manchester benefit last summer (Jun17) were part of a massive city celebration on Tuesday (22May18).

Also on the song sheet was One Last Time, a hit for Grande, who had tweeted: 'Thinking of you all today and every day.

"The resilience and determination shown by this city in the 12 months since is testament to that".

The ceremony included a national silence at 2.30pm to allow the country to remember those who died.

Twenty-two concertgoers were killed, and police say more than 800 people were left "with physical and deep psychological injuries".

Among the dignitaries present were the Duke of Cambridge, Prime Minister Theresa May, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon, Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable, Greater Manchester Chief Constable Ian Hopkins, Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham and Sir Richard Leese, the leader of Manchester City Council.

People laid flowers and cards in St Ann's Square, which became a focal point for mourners after the attack.

The victims were represented by 22 lit candles on the altar, which were made using wax from the thousands left in their memory by mourners in St Ann's Square at the time of the attack.

Later, thousands of people - including a choir of attack survivors - gathered for a concert and sing-song in the city's Albert Square.
