Blasting News reported on Saturday's terror attack in London, where three men driving a white van first drove into pedestrians on London Bridge before heading through the Borough Market area of London, stabbing people at random. Since that report, the death toll has now increased to seven people killed and dozens injured in the terror attack. However, this will not stop Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester Benefit Concert from going ahead.

Extra security and warnings regarding One Love Manchester benefit concert

British police have said in a statement that the One Love Manchester concert will go ahead, but they did warn people attending the event to take additional precautions.

According to the police statement, security for the event has been further increased with the addition of more officers and volunteers from across Britain. However Greater Manchester Police have requested attendees to travel to the Old Trafford stadium by public transport and to avoid carrying any bags that could appear to contain explosives or weapons into the stadium.

As reported by News.com, while the stage was being set up for the benefit concert, there was a heavy presence of police, security personnel and sniffer dogs.

Benefit concert for the victims of the Manchester Arena terror attack

The One Love Manchester benefit concert has been organized by Grande to honor the victims of the May 22 terror attack at the Manchester Arena, which killed 22 and injured 116 people. An all star cast will be performing at the event, including Grande herself. In addition to those mentioned in the recent article, Black Eyed Peas, Little Mix and Robbie Williams have been added to the program.

Fans who had attended Grande’s concert on May 22 when the terror attack occurred received free tickets to the benefit concert.

Other tickets were reportedly sold out within around six minutes of going on sale on Thursday. Organizers expect 50,000 people to attend the One Love Manchester concert. All proceeds from the event will benefit the We Love Manchester fund, set up by the Red Cross and Manchester City Council in aid of the victims of the attack and their families.
