Amongst the heartbreak of the horrific Manchester attack, stories of kindness and unity have emerged, strengthening our faith in humanity.
Homeless man Stephen Jones has been hailed a hero after reports of his selfless actions after the deadly blast went viral.
Mr Jones was sleeping next to the Manchester Arena on Monday evening when a bomb went off, killing 22 people and injuring 69. Jones rushed to the aid of the injured, pulling shrapnel out of a little girls face and carrying her to safety.

West Ham’s co-chairman David Sullivan and his son Dave Jnr were touched by the homeless man’s actions and took to social media in a bid to track him down.
“Me and dad want to rent the homeless man in Manchester a house for 6 months to help him get on his feet,” Dave Jnr tweeted.
“If anyone can help us get in touch much much appreciated. Such a selfless act needs rewarding. Please tag anyone who can help us.”
Just hours later, Dave Jnr revealed he had found the good samaritan and offered to rent him a house to help him get back on his feet.
“WE HAVE FOUND STEVE! Shows the power for good social media has. Thank you to all those involved, you have helped change a mans life.”
Mr Jones is just one of hundreds of people doing good deeds in wake of the tragedy. Taxi drivers are also offering free lifts to those in need, people are donating food to hospital staff working tirelessly with the injured, and lines for blood donations are so long that some people are even being turned away.
