Second source.
The warning to stay away from Manchester Arena came after reports of two loud explosions during an Ariana Grande concert Monday night.

Apparently it happened towards the end of the concert.
Be careful what you read/hear during early reports.

Armed forces to guard 'key sites' across the UK

Members of the armed forces will be deployed across the UK as part of the raising of the UK's terror level.
Prime Minister Theresa May said members of the military would be under the command of the police as part of what is being called Operation Tempora.
Armed forces personnel will be visible at "big events" such as football matches and concerts, she said.

The UK's terror threat level is now at critical, the third time it has been at the highest level since the alert system was introduced.
The first time the critical level was reached was in 2006, when a plot to blow up transatlantic airliners with liquid bombs was foiled in a major operation.
