In times of such sadness, it is important to hail those who went out of their way to help and one homeless man from Manchester did just that.

Stephen Jones rushed to help injured children outside the arena with ITV News speaking to him about the incident.

He said: “It’s just instinct to go and help if someone needs your help and it was children.

“It was a lot of children with blood all over them – crying and screaming.

“We were having to pull nails out of their arms and a couple out of this little girl’s face.”

Jones' heroic actions received universal acclaim, particularly from West Ham owner David Sullivan and his son, with the pair tracking him down to reward him for his bravery.

Sullivan Jr. posted a series of tweets looking for Steve, saying that he and his father were prepared to offer him six months house rent in order to help him get back on his feet.

Many people flooded in with replies to help in their search and at 8:46 pm on Tuesday night, they had found him.

It is a truly heartwarming story to give hope back to those who were brought down by what was a horrible tragedy.

Manchester City star Yaya Toure also done his best to revive positivity in the city, with him and his agent, Dimitri Seluk, donating £100,000 to the victims of the tragedy, per BBC Sport.
