The first victims of the Manchester Terror Attack have been identified, as we start to learn more about the 22 innocent lives lost when a suicide bomber targeted an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

Saffie Roussos, who is just 8-years-old was confirmed among the dead, tragically she was separated from her mother and sister who are undergoing treatment for shrapnel wounds.

Apparently Saffie's mother hasn't been notified of her death because her injuries are too severe.

The primary school student has been described as a "beautiful little girl, cheerful and chatty". Saffie's believed to be the youngest victim of the attack.
