The mother of the youngest person to die in the Manchester bombing has been taken off life support and made aware of her daughter's death, a family friend has said.

Saffie Roussos, aged eight, from Leyland in Lancashire, was among the 22 people killed by suicide bomber Salman Abedi at Manchester Arena.

She had been attending the Ariana Grande concert with her mum, Lisa, and older sister Ashlee Bromwich.

Lisa and Ashlee, who is in her 20s, were both taken to hospital.

Mrs Roussos was apparently in a critical situation at first, but came off life support on Saturday.

Mr Swanny said she was "talking, and is fully aware of the situation", adding that she was "now out of any danger".

He added that Ms Bromwich was also improving and had been talking to her mum.

Mr Swanny finished by saying: "I hope this news will make everyone smile as this is the best news we've had through this tragedy."

Anyone who was at Ariana Grande's Manchester Arena concert has been offered a free pass to this Sunday's One Love Manchester benefit gig.

Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Take That and Miley Cyrus will also be on the bill, alongside Ariana Grande.

All net proceeds will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which is supporting grieving families and victims.
