The Funds Raised By The 'One Love' Concert Now Total Almost £10million

The amount raised by yesterday's One Love Manchester is still rising but it looks like the total is now close to £10million.

The British Red Cross has said that more than $3million (£2.35million) was raised during Ariana Grande's all-star benefit concert on Sunday evening.

Earlier in the day, before the show began, the organisation tweeted that its Manchester Emergency Fund had already reached $9million (£7.3million).

That brings the total raised to more than $12million (about £9.6million).

Ariana also announced on Twitter: "Uber will make a donation equal to all Uber fares taken to and from #OneLoveManchester to British Red Cross' We Love Manchester Fund."

She was joined by Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Take That, Little Mix, Pharrell and others for yesterday's show - which also saw a surprise appearance by hometown icon Liam Gallagher.

"Well, the fantastic news is we've already raised around £7million [or around $9million]," chief executive Mike Adamson told the AP overnight. "And we expect to raise another £1.5million from ticket sales tonight and then further funding from the TV rights and merchandising. So, we're really looking to an appeal that's going to move towards £10million."

The fund will help alleviate immediate suffering and ensure victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties, according to the British Red Cross.
