Staff at a primary school in Leeds have expressed their "deep sadness'' after confirming the death of one of their former colleagues in the Manchester bombing.

The family of Wendy Fawell, from Otley, had mounted a frantic campaign to find the 50-year-old who had been missing since Monday night's explosion.

This morning, St Oswald's C of E Primary School, in Guiseley, said on Twitter: "It is with deepest sadness that I confirm that our former colleague Wendy Fawell was killed in the Manchester bombing. RIP, Wendy.''

Ms Fawell was reported to have been about to leave the concert with her 15-year-old daughter Charlotte, along with a friend and her sons, when they were caught in the attack.

Charlotte was taken to hospital in Oldham and her brother, Adam Fawell, 29, began a desperate search for his mother.

More than 100 people attended a vigil for Ms Fawell in Otley on Tuesday evening.
