Ariana Grande has responded to the London Bridge and Borough Market attacks that have killed at least six people and injured at least 48.

Three attackers were shot dead after the van and knife attack at London Bridge and Borough Market – locations less than half-a-mile apart – just after 10pm on 3 June.

As news of the attacks emerged Grande tweeted: “Praying for London.”

Eyewitnesses reported seeing several people lying injured on the pavement or the middle of the road after a white van began mowing people down on London Bridge.

It is also less than two weeks since 22-year-old Salman Abedi detonated a homemade bomb at the Manchester Arena shortly after the conclusion of an Ariana Grande concert, killing 22 people and injuring dozens more.

Grande is currently back in Manchester paying visits to victims in hospital and also to the loved ones of those lost.

She is preparing for the One Love Manchester concert which takes place on the evening of 4 June, and will include performances by herself, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Niall Horan, Little Mix, Robbie Williams and Black Eyed Peas.

The whole concert will be broadcast live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, alongside radio coverage on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 5 live, BBC World Service and BBC Radio Manchester.
