After the attack, Ariana paused her tour but returned to the city just two weeks later to headline the One Love concert in June 2017.

She made the brave decision to return for the gala, which raised over £17 million, and watched the crowd who had attended her last performance in attendance.

The ceremony saw many stars take to the stage at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, including Coldplay, Katy Perry, Liam Gallagher, Justin Bieber and Robbie Williams.

Ariana’s 2017 single One More Time also climbed to number one as her fans rallied to show their support after her flawless performance.

The British Red Cross revealed that it raised more than £2.35m during the party.

In November it was revealed that the bombing had been ‘preventable’ and there had been a ‘perfect storm of failures’, a former terror officer claimed on the eve of a damning public report on the emergency services’ response to the attack.

The terrorist attack in May 2017 injured hundreds and claimed 22 lives, and the youngest victim was an eight-year-old girl.

It took the paramedics 43 minutes to get to the scene, and firefighters stationed just three miles away didn’t arrive until the last critically injured victim was rushed to the hospital and wrongly reported a shooting to the police.

Andrea Bradbury, a retired counter-terrorism police inspector who was herself wounded in the 2017 attack, said emergency services were “completely unprepared and caught off guard” by the bombing.

It comes as a public inquiry into the emergency services response is set to publish a critical report outlining a number of failures today, The Times reports.

More than 150 victims and victims’ families are also preparing civil claims ahead of the report’s release today.
