The Manchester terror attack killed 22 innocent people on May 22

Millie Robson, 15, was one of the people caught up in the horrific attack when a suicide bomber targeted those on their way out of a Ariana Grande gig in May.

She was with her friend Laura Anderson as they left the venue when terrorist Salman Abedi waged the devastating attack - leaving Millie with shrapnel and bolts in her leg.

She bravely went back to the arena on Thursday, and urged other victims to also go back.

She told the Daily Mirror: "Today was one of the toughest days of my life.

"Revisiting Manchester Arena and seeing the place where my life changed for ever is something I couldn't event think about doing a few months ago.

"Nevertheless, surrounded by my family and best friends, we allowed ourselves to gain closure from the difficult visit and [it] truly showed me and Laura how lucky we were that night."

She added that life should never be taken for granted and tweeted a recommendation to others affected by the attack to revisit the arena.

Millie spent more than two weeks in hospital following the bombing and was one of more than 100 people injured - 22 died in the horrific blast.

The concert, "We Are Manchester", will pay tribute to the victims of the attack. The youngest, Saffie Roussos, was aged eight.

James Allen, the venue's general manager, said: "May's events will never be forgotten, but they will not stop us, or Mancunian music fans, from coming together to enjoy live music."

The line-up for this evening's concert, which was sold out, included Noel Gallagher, formerly of Oasis, one of the most successful bands to emerge from Manchester.

Also performing will be local poet Tony Walsh, known as Longfella, who moved crowds to tears at a vigil in central Manchester the day after the attack with his poem "This Is The Place" which celebrates the spirit of the city.

Grande will not take part, having performed at a previous benefit concert, "One Love Manchester", which raised funds for victims.

The June 4 concert, which took place at a cricket ground in Manchester, also featured artists including Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus and Pharrell Williams.
