The charity set up to help victims' families and survivors of the Manchester Arena attack is to stop taking donations.

The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, launched in the wake of the blast which claimed 22 lives, has handed out more than 20m.

About 3m was given to people left with psychological trauma.

Trustee Edith Conn said: "The time has arrived when the charity's work is able to start being scaled down."

Pop star Ariana Grande was performing at the arena on the night a suicide bomber blew himself up in the foyer in May last year.




The One Love Manchester benefit concert, organised by her and staged in the city the following month, helped raise 7.3m for the fund.
