ARIANA GRANDE HAS made a surprise visit to Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital to meet some of her injured fans.

The US singer visited fans yesterday, less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured several others at her concert in Manchester.

The singer will play at a star-studded benefit concert, alongside acts including Katy Perry, Coldplay and Take That, in the city tomorrow.

The popstar and fans shared images of the visit on social media.

Lauren Thorpe wrote on Twitter that the visit was “just the lift all the kids (and parents) needed”.

Investigations into the bombing are ongoing.

Yesterday, police released new CCTV images of suicide bomber Salman Abedi in a bid to gain more information from the public about his movements before he detonated the bomb.
