The second victim of Britain's worst terror attack since the 7/7 London bombings has been named as an eight-year-old girl who was at the packed Ariana Grande concert when a suicide bomber blew himself up.
Saffie Rose Roussos, from Preston, was with her mother and older sister - who is in her 20s - when the lone ISIS attacker detonated a ball bearing bomb as thousands of youngsters were leaving Manchester Arena last night.
The primary school pupil was named as the second victim of the attack, which left at least 22 dead and around 120 injured.
This morning it was confirmed that sixth form student Georgina Callander, 18, also died when a device was detonated in the arena's foyer area moments after the popstar's concert had finished.
She had posted a picture of herself with Ariana Grande at the same venue two years ago, captioning it: 'My meet and greet photos came through, she was so cute and lovely, I hugged her so tight and she said she loved my bow. I can't get over this, I never will.'
In a follow up message after meeting Ariana Grande backstage on June 4, 2015, Georgina wrote: 'After 6 years of waiting I finally got to meet and see my love. I am so happy right now. Hands down the best concert of my life.'
On Sunday the teenager, from Chorley in Lancashire, tweeted the pop star, writing: 'SO EXCITED TO SEE YOU TOMORROW.' She was a second-year student at Runshaw College studying health and social care.
Saffie's mother Lisa Roussos and her other daughter Ashlee Bromwich were taken to different hospitals after being injured by flying shrapnel.

In a statement released this afternoon, Tarleton Community Primary School headteacher, Chris Upton, confirmed the death of his pupil.
He said: 'News of Saffie's death in this appalling attack has come as a tremendous shock to all of us and I would like to send our deepest condolences to all of her family and friends.
'The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking.'
He added: 'Saffie was simply a beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word. She was loved by everyone and her warmth and kindness will be remembered fondly.
'Saffie was quiet and unassuming with a creative flair. Our focus is now on helping pupils and staff cope with this shocking news and we have called in specialist support from Lancashire County Council to help us do that.
'We are a tight-knit school and wider community and will give each other the support that we need at this difficult time.'
Saffie's parents are believed to run a fish and chip shop in Leyland, Lancashire. Her mother Lisa Roussos is currently in hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
A close friend told the Evening Standard Georgina died in hospital with her mother at her bedside in hospital.
Friends paid tribute to her on social media, with one writing: 'Rest in peace Gina. I love you so incredibly much, you deserved the world & more. I'm so lucky to have met you and known you.'
Another tweeted: 'A beautiful girl with the kindest heart & soul, I'll miss you forever, may you rest in a better place than here. I love you.'
Georgina was described as 'the sweetest person you will ever meet' by one friend, with another tweeting that she was 'shattered' by the news.
Another friend wrote: 'Rest in peace one of the most kind and beautiful people I've ever had the pleasure of calling a friend.' Others described Georgina as a 'ray of sunshine.'

'She was killed last night in Manchester. My love to her and all the families of the victims.'
At least 22 people - including children - died and 119 more were injured after a suicide bomber targeted youngsters in Britain's worst terror attack since 7/7.
Traumatised families have told of the scenes of carnage they witnessed, including how nuts and bolts tore into young music fans when the blast was detonated in the foyer area of the Manchester Arena as the concert ended.
The bomb went off at a time when mothers and fathers were leaving with their children and other parents were arriving to pick up groups of youngsters.

COLLEGE'S TRIBUTE TO PUPIL GEORGINA

'It is with enormous sadness that it appears that one of the people who lost their lives in Monday’s Manchester attack was one of our students here at Runshaw College.
'Georgina Callander was a former Bishop Rawstorne pupil studying with us on the second year of her Health and Social Care course.
'Our deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers go out to all of Georgina’s friends, family, and all of those affected by this loss.'
Police this morning confirmed that the suicide bomber, who was known to police, died inside the arena. US security sources said the bomber had travelled to the venue on public transport.
Security sources have told MailOnline that the bomber was known to authorities and initial analysis of the 'sophisticated' device suggests he may have been part of a cell.
Hundreds of people are now desperately trying to track down loved ones who went missing in the aftermath of the attack, with police having to tell some parents their children have died. 
Describing the scenes after the blast, one eyewitness told MailOnline she saw a young girl screaming 'I don't know where my sister is'. Another man told how he cradled a dying woman and saw a girl with her legs blown off.
As the explosion tore through the lobby, terrified youngsters stampeded for the sold-out 21,000-seater stadium's exits in horrifying scenes caught on mobile phone cameras. Witnesses described the aftermath as being 'like a warzone'.
US star Grande, who escaped unharmed, tweeted she was 'broken', adding: 'From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don't have words.' Her manager Scooter Braun said: 'We mourn for the children.'
Eyewitness Jane Hanson, 44, was watching the concert from a box inside the packed arena with her 16-year-old daughter Andrea.
She told MailOnline she heard a 'massive bang' and saw a 'stampede' of people sprint out of the venue with one girl shouting 'I don't know where my sister is'.
She said: 'We were just getting ready to leave and there was a massive bang below. We initially thought it came from the stage but then we saw smoke below us. I saw children hysterically crying and panicking. One man was carrying children in his arms.
