There's an unsettling feeling around Manchester, you don't truly realise how horrific acts like these affect a community, a city. Until they happen in the place were you live. When you see attacks on the news it feels so far away in France, Germany and Belguim and the threat doesn't feel truly real.
As more news comes out about the attack it gets even more unsettling. I know people who were there, my friends, family of colleagues. Even I could have been right outside that night if I had met my friend after they finished work. I went to the vigil yesterday and the city felt different.
My heart goes out to the victims and their families.
