LONDON - Several people have died following an explosion Monday night at an Ariana Grande concert in northern England, police and witnesses said. The singer was not injured, according to a representative.

There were few further details of what happened during the concert by the American singer, but witnesses reported hearing two loud bangs coming from near the arena's bars.

"A huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena," concertgoer Majid Khan, 22, told Britain's Press Association. "It was one bang and essentially everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us as they were trying to exit."

Added Oliver Jones, 17: "The bang echoed around the foyer of the arena and people started to run."

Video from inside the arena showed concertgoers screaming as they made their way out amid a sea of pink balloons.

Police advised the public to avoid the area around the Manchester Arena, and the train station near the arena, Victoria Station, was evacuated and all trains cancelled.

Joseph Carozza, a representative from Grande's U.S. record label, said the singer is OK and they are investigating what happened.

The Dangerous Woman Tour is the third concert tour by Grande to support her third studio album, Dangerous Woman. The tour began on February 3 in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.

From Manchester the tour is to move through Europe, including Belgium, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and France, through the summer with stops in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico and on to Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia and more.

More than 50 people gathered for a massive volunteer search in hopes to find the missing Brantford man that was last seen leaving his home on may 10th.

The search along the grand river was disappointing as members could not find Andrew Osborne or any clues of his disappearance.

The search began on 9 a.m. Saturday when volunteers gathered at Brant Park.

Everyone divided into teams, with one team taking on the waters with rafts and canoes.

Osborne was last seen wearing black and grey checkered PJ pants, a black metal militia baseball cap, black Sons of Anarchy hoodie, white K-Swiss running shoes and carrying a duck commander black and grey backpack.

Doughnut driving vandals left a London soccer field dug up – but thanks to the help of a London business, the field is almost ready to be played on again.

Surveillance cameras from the Stoneycreek Baptist Church captured footage of a black SUV driving in circles, leaving it unplayable for the Norwest Soccer Club which kicked off their season earlier this month.

Parkway gardens donated grass seed, soil and sod to help cover up the deep, muddy tire tracks.

The vehicle showed up to the field on two separate occasions but for the same reason. One time was on February 18th where the cameras caught the two males in the vehicle in the act and another time on March 4th.

Police have appealed to anyone with information about the incident to contact them.

Canada and 10 other countries that signed the Trans-Pacific Partnership are taking another look at the trade pact, with the possibility of reviving it without the involvement of the U.S.

U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out of the agreement in January, leaving many assuming the deal would die.

But ministers attending this weekend's Asia-Pacific Economic Conference in Vietnam have agreed to present assessments to their leaders when they meet at their annual A-PEC summit in November.
