The attack on May 22 a year ago claimed 22 lives after a suicide bomber detonated a shrapnel bomb as fans came out of Grandes concert at Manchester Arena.

They included the Manchester Survivors Choir, made up of people who were at the arena on the night of the fateful concert last May 22, and Parrs Wood High School's Harmony Group, whose post-attack tribute went viral past year.

On May 22, 2017, 22 people, including children, died after a bomb exploded at the end of an Ariana Grande concert inside Manchester Arena.

The school choir which accompanied Ariana Grande at the One Love Manchester benefit last summer (Jun17) were part of a massive city celebration on Tuesday (22May18).

Grande suspended her Dangerous Woman Tour after the bombing and returned for the One Love Manchester charity concert weeks later, which raised funds for victims of the attack.

In an address, the Bishop of Manchester, the Rt Rev David Walker, said: "This cathedral is here, Manchester is here and you who were hurt or bereaved 12 months ago today are forever part of Manchester and forever part of us".

Twenty-two concertgoers were killed, and police say more than 800 people were left "with physical and deep psychological injuries".

They will attend the service at Manchester Cathedral alongside first responders, civic leaders and some of the scores injured in the bombing.

"The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won", she said.

Andy Burnham, the mayor of Greater Manchester, tweeted: "Today we come together, we remember each of the 22 people whose lives were taken".

The cathedral service was shown on a big screen in the city as well as in other cities across Britain, including York, Liverpool and Glasgow.
