AN eight-year-old girl and a college student from Lancashire were among the first people to be named as victims of last night's Manchester terror attack.
Saffie Roussos, eight, who was killed in the attack, was described by the headteacher at her school as a “beautiful little girl”.
Another victim was named by her college as Georgina Callander, who was studying health and social care at Runshaw College in Leyland.
A GoFundMe page to raise money for Georgina’s family to help with the funeral and memorial costs has raised more than £5,000.
Saffie had been at the Manchester Arena concert with her mother, Lisa Roussos, and sister, Ashlee Bromwich, who is in her 20s, from Leyland, who were both injured.
Paying tribute to Saffie, Chris Upton, headteacher of Tarleton Community Primary School, said: “News of Saffie’s death in this appalling attack has come as a tremendous shock to all of us and I would like to send our deepest condolences to all of her family and friends.
“The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking.”
Runshaw College spoke of its “enormous sadness” over Georgina's death.

It said: “It is with enormous sadness that it appears that one of the people who lost their lives in Monday’s Manchester attack was one of our students at Runshaw College.
“Georgina Callander was a former Bishop Rawstorne pupil studying with us on the second year of her Health and Social Care course.
“Our deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers go out to all of Georgina’s friends, family and all those affected by this loss.
“We are offering all available support possible at this tragic time, including counselling with our dedicated student support team.”
On Twitter Sophie Jauregui said: “To my beautiful best friend I hope you rest in peace my darling. I love you so much and will always miss you.”
Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy in Croston confirmed that Georgina died as a result of the injuries she sustained.
In a statement the school said: “Georgina was a lovely young student who was very popular with her peers and the staff and always made the most of the opportunities she had at the school.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Georgina’s family at this terrible time, and we think especially of her brothers Harry and Daniel who were also former students of the school.
“All of our students will gather together today for a time of prayer and reflection and to give thanks for the life of Georgina.”
Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins said: “This has been the most horrific incident we have had to face in Greater Manchester and one that we all hoped we would never see.
“Families and many young people were out to enjoy a concert at the Manchester Arena and have lost their lives.”
Andy Burnham, the Greater Manchester metro mayor, said the attack was an “evil act”.
He said: “It is hard to believe what has happened here in the last few hours, and to put into words the shock, anger, and hurt that we feel today.
“These were children, young people and their families that those responsible chose to terrorise and kill.”
