Man Utd chief Woodward says team 'numb' after Manchester attack

Twenty-two people were killed by a suicide bomber at the Manchester Arena following a concert by American popstar Ariana Grande, while scores more have been left injured. "Old Trafford's Megastore, Museum, Red Cafe and Stadium Tour are all closed to the public today". "All of you, and all of us". "We're numb. The events were sickening and all our thoughts at the moment are with the victims and the families affected by it". "Due to the tight security arrangements, Uefa urges fans to arrive at the stadium as early as possible, as detailed checks will be made at the entrances, resulting in potential delays in accessing the stadium". "My thoughts are with all of those that have been affected by this tragedy".

The Metropolitan Police has confirmed that extra armed officers will be deployed for this weekend's FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in the wake of the attack.

Stockholm itself has been under heightened alert since five died in a terrorist attack in April, shortly before Borussia Dortmund's team bus was attacked with a roadside bomb in Dortmund before the Champions League quarter-final against Monaco.

"I think to this city, Manchester, and Mancunians, that I love deeply".

"It shocks me that so many innocent people lost their lives and I would like to send my condolences to the families of those affected".

The president's original dismissal letter to Comey indicated that he was being fired for his handling of the Clinton email probe. Lavrov denied that the subject of Comey came up during the meeting, according to Interfax news agency.

Prior to Tuesday's training session, several current players, including Daley Blind, Jesse Lingard and captain Wayne Rooney posted messages of shock and sympathy on their Twitter accounts, as have players from Manchester City.

A number of sports stars past and present, along with their clubs, paid heartfelt tributes to the victims.
