Hero Off-Duty Medics Offer To Help Out Following Manchester Attack
Health workers who were visiting Manchester offered to help out, following the shocking attack at the Ariana Grande concert last night.
A group of NHS staff who were attending a conference in the city offered help to local hospitals.
North West Ambulance Service sent 60 ambulances to the scene in total. It has been reported that 59 people were taken to hospital and others were treated at the scene.
Off-duty nurses and medics took to Twitter to offer support and assistance to those injured in the horrendous incident.
Others took to social media to praise the hard-work and selflessness of those helping out in the wake of the attack.

I know a nurse in Manchester who got out of bed at 2.00am to get to her hospital to help. Really are proper heroes.

Manchester mayor Andy Burnham said: "I want to thank hundreds of police, fire and ambulance staff who worked through the night in the most difficult circumstances imaginable."
Locals offered up beds, couches, free lifts and cups of tea for those caught up in the horrendous attack. The hashtag #roomforManchester was trending last night as people across the city tried to help in any way they could.
Comedian Jason Manford wrote a post on Facebook praising local people for getting involved:
One woman took 50 children to a nearby Holiday Inn and manned a phone line for worried parents. Paula Robinson was at Victoria Station when she saw dozens of terrified teenage girls running away from the building.
She ran from the station and encouraged the young girls to follow her. She took them to a hotel and shared her phone number on social media, urging worried parents to get in touch.
An emergency number is available for those who are concerned about loved ones or anyone who may have been in the area - 0161 856 9400.
Manchester refused to break after last night's attack. Off-duty medics showed up to help out, taxi drivers worked for free and hundreds of residents offered up beds, sofas and cups of tea for those affected.
