Kelly Brewster went to the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena last night, where a terror attack killed 22 and left 59 injured, and has not been seen since.

Appeals for information on Kelly's whereabouts have been shared online, with friends and relatives posting about the disappearance on Facebook and Twitter.

It is understood that Kelly went to the concert with her sister and niece but they became separated after the blast, caused by a suicide bomber who detonated an improvised explosive device just moments after the show finished.
