The Runshaw College student died in the Manchester Arena bombing after travelling to see her idol Ariana Grande.

This afternoon the family of Georgina, from Tarleton, near Preston, went to the square in Manchester, which has become the focal point for thousands of floral tributes.

Her parents released yellow balloons in memory of the teenager, who has been described as “a beautiful girl inside and out, always friendly and smiley”.
