A 14-year-old girl has been named as the latest victim killed in the Manchester Arena terror attack on Monday night.

Nell Jones, 14, died at the scene of the blast on Monday evening, the student's school in Cheshire said.

She was using crutches at the time of the explosion due to a ligament injury.

Denis Oliver, headteacher at Holmes Chapel Comprehensive and Sixth Form said: "We are all devastated by the loss and as a school community we must now come to terms with what has happened.

"Nell was a very bright and popular student."

Nell was attending the concert with school friend Freya Lewis, who was saved by a couple from Bradford after the bomb went off. Freya currently remains in hospital.

Her friend Gina Robinson posted on Facebook: "It's with my deepest sorrow that I update this post, Nell Jones has been the latest confirmed victim out of the 22 who have died.

"Thank you to the 533 people who shared this, all our thoughts should be with the Jones family currently. R.I.P Nell xxx"
