    David Walliams has paid a surprise visit to the school of the youngest victim of the Manchester attack.

    Saffie Roussos, 8, was one of 22 people killed at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena on 22 May.

    Author and comedian Walliams thanked Tarleton Community Primary School, in Lancashire, for the “warm welcome”.

    The school said he “popped in to cheer us up” by reading extracts from one of his books with “incredibly funny voices”.
