'The Angel Of Manchester' Paula Robinson

A woman who escorted 50 teens to safety following the Manchester terror attack is being hailed as ''The Angel Of Manchester'.

Paula Robinson, 48, was at Victoria train station next to the Manchester Arena when what is thought to be a bomb killed 22 people, and injured 59 others. 

She posted on her Facebook page to say she had taken about 50 children to a nearby Holiday Inn to keep them safe until they could be put in touch with their parents.

The Good Samaritan, from West Dalton, then circulated her phone number, so that concerned parents could get in contact. 

Mrs Robinson, who was with her husband at the time, wrote online: “It was literally seconds after the explosion. I got the teens to run with me.

“We have got about 50 kids with us waiting to be picked up, they are safe we will look after them.

“Please repost for any parents with children at M.E.N. We have taken as many kids as we can to Holiday Inn. We will keep them safe and stay with them.”

People on social media have hailed her as an angel for coming to the children's aid. 


Paula has since left the children and has asked that people ring the appropriate authorities.
