The following statement is from Allerton High School in Leeds, attended by 14-year-old Sorrell Leczkowski who was tragically killed in the Manchester Arena attack on Monday.

Elaine Silson, headteacher at Allerton High School, said:

“We are all extremely shocked and saddened by the events in Manchester on Monday night.

“Sorrell was a delightful member of the school community. She enjoyed her studies, had a lovely group of friends and was a real asset to Allerton High School.
