A woman who has opened her home to help strangers concerned for their loved ones has called for Mancunians to help out in any way possible.

Twenty-two people - including children - died and up to 59 were injured after an explosion ripped through the foyer between the Manchester Arena and Victoria Station. 

Families of fans and revellers have been desperately searching for news of their loved ones, posting on social media to try to gain information.

Siobhan, who lives in south Manchester, offered up space in her home for people by way of the Twitter hashtag #RoomforManchester.

She told Paul Ross how her home is on all the major bus routes into the city centre, and how she is in the perfect position to help out worried family members who need to get to the hospital or other important areas. 

Siobhan insisted it was important for Mancunians to help out in "any practical way possible" to show how the city is "standing up and supporting people in distress."
