THERE was a huge out­pour­ing of grief from all over the world at the death of Eilidh MacLeod and the se­ri­ous in­juries suf­fered by her best friend Laura MacIn­tyre, both from Barra, in the Manch­ester Arena atroc­ity. Jackie Aspinall posted: ‘ We are trav­el­ling up to Oban from Lan­cashire for our an­nual fam­ily hol­i­day. We feel like we have a foot in each com­mu­nity. We are des­per­ately sad­dened. Rest in Peace lit­tle one.’ Pat Tre­han lamented: ‘ There are no words. So sad for the loss of Eilidh and the other beau­ti­ful chil­dren and young peo­ple. Im­pos­si­ble to imag­ine the pain her fam­ily and friends are feel­ing. I can only hope heart­felt thoughts and prayers can help a lit­tle.’

Danni Hay said: ‘ What a ter­ri­ble end to this. So sad. I can’t even imag­ine how the fam­ily from a small safe com­mu­nity will deal with this. To have the girls so ex­cited about a big trip away and it ends like this. It’s heart­break­ing.’
