Greater Manchester Police tweeted that they had been called to a 'serious incident' at the 21,000 capacity arena.

They are urging people to stay away from the area.

Hannah Young told LAdbible: "I was in the upper tier and we heard a big bang, and many got scared. Initially, as there were so many balloons in the arena anyway, we assumed it might be something to do with that.

"We got ushered into a tiny, tiny room and everyone was screaming to let us out. After 10 minutes the stewards and police got us out shouting as us to move as quick as we could.

"Everyone on the street was screaming, crying, and kids were panicking. Ambulance sirens were going."

Sirens can be heard across the city centre, as people are evacuated from the building.
