Ariana Grande’s mum has condemned the “diabolical” terror attack that killed 22 people in Manchester a week ago.
Joan Grande paid tribute to the victims of the explosion following her daughter’s concert in the city, and thanked everybody who supported those affected on the night.
In a heartfelt Twitter post on Monday, she wrote: “This past week I have spent in reflective thought, prayer & deep sorrow.
“I join my daughter in extending my help & services to all those affected by the diabolical act of terror which occurred in Manchester.
“My heart goes out to all the victims: those who lost their lives, those injured, those recovering & all survivors of that night, along with the families & friends whose grief knows no bounds.
“I stand with you all in the face of evil & we stand together to never let it rule our lives!
“Thank you to all those who helped in any way that night in Manchester. I continually thank those who are & were in service protecting our freedoms every day all over the world! #MemorialDay.”
