The mother of a little girl who was photographed being comforted by a police officer after a bomb exploded in the foyer of Manchester Arena has been confirmed as one of the 22 people killed in the attack.

Family members launched an appeal for mum-of-three Michelle when they discovered she was missing after the concert. Her niece, Laura Murray, confirmed her death on Facebook, before her family released an official statement to the media.

"Michelle Kiss was a loving wife to Tony, mother to Dylan, Elliot and Millie," the family shared.

"Family was her life and we are all obviously devastated by her loss. She has been taken away from us, and all that love her, in the most traumatic way imaginable.

"We hope to draw from the courage and strength she showed in her life to get through this extremely difficult time."

In her last social media post, Michelle uploaded an image of her daughter, Millie, and a friend with the caption, "Excited girlies ready to watch Ariana."

50-year-old Jane Tweddle-Taylor was accompanying a friend to pick up her children when she was killed in the blast.

According to her husband, former footballer Mark Taylor, said she was waiting with her friend in the foyer for the concert to finish.

"Her and her friend were just having some food waiting for the concert to finish," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"They went back to pick them up as arranged. They were waiting in that area where the explosion happened and unfortunately Jane didn't come back.

"Her friend fortunately was ok, and the children were taken to safety. I was actually in London away on business and one of my daughters rang me at the hotel to say mum had gone missing and there had been an explosion."

Jane worked as a receptionist at a school in Blackpool. The principal of South Shore Academy, Jane Bailey, said the community was "devastated" by news of her death.

"Jane was a well-loved member of staff...a truly wonderful friend and colleague to all of us."

The three victims join the list of 12 others - including an eight-year-old girl - who have been named.
