In a joint statement released through Greater Manchester Police, their relatives said: "On the night our daughter Chloe died and our son Liam died, their wings were ready but our hearts were not.

"They were perfect in every way for each other and were meant to be.

"They were beautiful inside and out to ourselves and our families, and they were inseparable.

"They lived to go to new places together and explore different cities. They wanted to be together forever and now they are."

Wendy Fawell:

Ms Fawell, a mother from Otley in West Yorkshire, was reported to have been about to leave the concert with her 15-year-old daughter Charlotte, along with a friend and her sons, when they were caught in the attack.

Charlotte was taken to hospital in Oldham and her brother, Adam Fawell, 29, began a desperate search for his mother.

More than 100 people attended a vigil for her in Otley on Tuesday evening.

In a statement her son, who did not want to be identified, said: "Me and my family are truly devastated by the news. Mum was a wonderful woman. So kind and generous and touched the lives of so many.

"She will be greatly missed. Also I would like to add, how much it means to us, what everybody at home and in Manchester have done to support us at this time. Thank you."

Nell Jones:

Nell Jones, 14, was a "bright and popular" schoolgirl killed in the Manchester Arena bombing.

She died at the scene of the blast on Monday evening, her school in Cheshire said.

Denis Oliver, headteacher at Holmes Chapel Comprehensive and Sixth Form, said Nell was a "very bright and popular student", adding: "We are all devastated by the loss and as a school community we must now come to terms with what has happened."

Jane Tweddle:

School receptionist and mother-of-three Jane Tweddle was a "a truly wonderful friend and colleague," according to the principal of the school where she worked.

Ms Tweddle, 51, of Blackpool, was at the arena waiting for a friend's daughter when the blast happened, according to her friend Mark Taylor, who told BBC Radio Lancashire she was "a lovely lady and a very good mother to three daughters".

Jane Bailey, head of South Shore Academy, in Blackpool, said: "Jane was a truly wonderful friend and colleague to all of us at South Shore Academy. As our receptionist, she was in many ways, the public face of the school and she represented us amazingly in this role."

Sorrell Leczkowski:

Sorrell Leczkowski, 14, from Adel in Leeds, has been named as another of those killed in the Manchester attack.

Sorrell is reported to have been a pupil at Allerton High School in the city, though neither the school nor Leeds City Council would confirm this.

Greg Mulholland, the Liberal Democrat candidate for Leeds North West, paid tribute to the youngster on Facebook, saying: "My condolences thoughts & prayers are with the family of 14 year old Sorrell Leczkowski from Adel, Leeds, a victim of the Manchester attack. Heartbreaking news."

Mr Mulholland attended vigils in Leeds on Tuesday night for those killed and injured in the atrocity, and said the girl's mother and grandmother had also been injured.

He said: "People gathered to show sympathy and solidarity with all the victims of the Manchester attack and also especially to show the support of the local community to the families who have been caught up in this terrible atrocity.

"It is heartbreaking that amongst the victims is a 14-year-old girl from Adel. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family."

Michelle Kiss:

The mother of three's family vowed to "draw from the courage and strength she showed in her life" after they confirmed she had been taken away from them in the "most traumatic way imaginable".

Ms Kiss, from Lancashire, was "a loving wife to Tony, mother to Dylan, Elliot and Millie, as well as daughter to Mick and Christine and sister to Nichola", her family said.

They added: "She has been taken away from us, and all that love her, in the most traumatic way imaginable. We hope to draw from the courage and strength she showed in her life to get through this extremely difficult time."

A search is continuing for Barra schoolgirl Eilidh MacLeod who remains missing following the attack.

The 14-year-old was at the concert with friend Laura MacIntyre, 15. Laura is said to be in a "serious condition" in a Manchester hospital but Eilidh remains unaccounted for.

Courtney Boyle and Philip Tron:

Leeds Beckett University student Courtney Boyle, 19, and Philip Tron, 32, both from Gateshead, are also among the dead.

"And my gorgeous crazy Philip, you made my world a happy place and now you are both my angels flying high in the sky."

The family of off-duty Cheshire Police officer Elaine McIver have said "she would want us all to carry on regardless and not be frightened by fear tactics".

Ms McIver's partner Paul was injured in the attack.

In a statement issued through Greater Manchester Police, Ms McIver's family said: "Elaine was a much-loved daughter, sister, auntie, friend and colleague, the best we could ever have wished for.

"She was everyone's friend, thoughtful beyond belief, with an effervescent and outgoing personality...
