So far, Ariana has not yet posted anything about the bombing on her popular Instagram account, but perhaps she will by the end of the day.

Manchester has come together to remember the bombing that devastated the city a year ago, with a message of defiance in the face of terror.

Following the attack, Grande put on a benefit concert in Manchester for the families of those affected. "Thinking of you all today and every day", she wrote, with an emoji of the bumblebee which is a symbol of Manchester.

The 24-year-old organised a tribute concert, dubbed "One Love Manchester", which was held at the city's Old Trafford cricket ground on June 4 last year and featured artists that included Liam Gallagher, Little Mix, Coldplay, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.

Mani from The Stone Roses said: 'One voice Manchester - sing it up'.

"The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won", she said. In fact I know I love you all big time massive'.

Hearing restaurant workers speak Spanish sends man on rant
The manager tried to explain that the employee was speaking Spanish to a regular customer who frequents Fresh Kitchen . Many Twitter users posted information for the New York State Bar Association and urged followers to file complaints.

Earlier in the day, Prince William and Prime Minister Theresa May joined the families of victims at a special remembrance service held at Manchester Cathedral.

With his wife and father looking on, he paid tribute to the "amazing work" of the emergency services and those who responded on the night.

The hour-long service will include a minute silence that will be observed throughout the United Kingdom.

Photographs of those who died in the bombing were displayed on screens in the cathedral shortly before the silence and 22 lit candles on the altar represented each one of the victims, which were made using wax from the thousands of candles left in St Ann's Square in their memory last May.

Twenty-two concertgoers were killed, and police say more than 800 people were left "with physical and deep psychological injuries".

And at At 10.31pm, bells will ring out from the city's Town Hall, St Ann's Church and St Mary's RC Church to mark the moment when the attack took place 12 months ago.
