An Altrincham PR manager is among those still missing after the Manchester Arena terror attack.

Martyn Hett, a 29-year-old from Stockport, has worked as digital manager for Rumpus PR, based on Woodlands Road, since 2013.

His friend Stuart Aspinall, 25, has spent the day desperately seeking information about his friend after the pair were separated towards the end of last night’s gig.

A total of 22 people are now known to have died after a suicide bomber detonated a bomb shortly after the end of an Ariana Grande concert, with dozens injured.

Pleading for information, he said: “The more news that is coming out, the scarier this is getting. There was an explosion at the Ariana Grande concert tonight in Manchester and I haven’t seen my friend Martyn since.

“He went to the bar about 20 minutes before the end of the concert and got chatting to some girls. As I was leaving, the explosion happened and everyone started running.

“I just want to find out that he’s safe somewhere.”

His brother, Dan, also appealed for more information on Twitter.

Comedian Jason Manford is among those to have shared information about Martyn.
