Speaking after laying flowers on Borough High Street, Ms Campbell said she had felt "sick" when she learned about Saturday's attack.

She told the Press Association: "We felt we had to unite with London - obviously we have lost our daughter and we felt we needed to come and unite with them and let them know Manchester is supporting them and we are all here for them.

"We felt sick that they could do it again so soon, we felt worried for the people here and we just felt that we needed to be here and show our support."
